Hey girl! Sometimes a little butt-kicking is necessary

by debi9kids on April 6, 2012

Earlier this week I wrote about why I was really frustrated with those awful Autism “Awareness” posts I read online and if I can be honest, I have really allowed them to not only get under my skin, but they managed to almost completely make me lose focus on this most holy week.
And I have felt awful for it.
This week should have been about Palm Sunday, and Holy Thursday, and Good Friday and although we did celebrate our Seder last night, up until we sat down at the table, my heart wasn’t fully there because…
I was busy fuming.

I did manage to refocus and had a lovely dinner with Russ, the kids and Nanny Deb and after settling in for a little TV with the kids, I decided that maybe all that was really needed to clear my head was a little Ryan Gosling 😉Thank you, Ryan! I’m feeling much better now.
So, glad you took care of things 😉
(and, no, I am not advocating violence. I’m just saying that maybe publishers should be a little more responsible.)

And, honestly,
because it is the Holy week,
and because really everyone should be forgiven,
and because there is no reason to not just feel completely blessed in our lives and hope that those who can’t see it, one day will….

That is a beautiful prayer! I think it applies to adults too! 🙂 Love you, girl!

Yowza! What was the bad thing about autism awareness! All the autism awareness stuff I've seen lately was very constructive (albeit frightening – the recently published numbers are beyond sobering) – I take it the Huffington Post took a different tack?

this is the awful post:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hannah-brown/autism
Just imagine your child is newly diagnosed and this is what you read. THAT is why I am so disturbed by it. And, she didn't stop there. Hannah Brown also wrote another piece, I think for Today.

Just awful.

Oh my. Considering that it is nominally named at a parent in that situation, I must agree — what an amazingly insensitive piece. Really pretty inhuman. Yikes.

I love the Huff Post poster. They totally deserve to feel the wrath of Ryan! But, wow, he's so sweet to be praying for the kids. These are great!

thank you.

re: the Huff post piece, GRRRR! I just think of myself when I first found out and how horrified I would've been if I had read that.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the second picture. And as for that Huffington Post story, I am ignoring that the way I ignore the trend of corporate style shorts for women.

Ahh, I feel much better, thanks for letting me use your posters to vent . Happy Easter, thank you for that beautiful prayer.

I love your prayer. That is what is needed, not weird articles like the one in Huffpo.
