Blog Issues

I really enjoy blogging but often I ponder the reasons I do it. Today is one of those times. I haven't shared much of our families history because much of it is painful and we are all still dealing and healing with different issues.

One issue has been a visual disability that my oldest two chickadee's and I share. For some reason words and numbers do not bounce correctly from our optic nerves to our brains. I'll leave out all the technical jargon today but in severe cases (which one of my beauties has ) it makes life very difficult. Especially when your a very articulate and intelligent young woman. She reads and understands a myriad of things, loves history, science and writing. But can't memorize digits, words, etc.

We've been through every phonics program, math memorization program and medical visual therapy. To be left with huge gaps. Some have filled in, while others have not. Leaving the chickadees frustrated.

Enough said. Difficult especially when your an over achiever and first born. She/ we have made great strides and are still continuing.

Today someone felt it was their place to tell her how they feel about her writing on her blog........ Needless to say ......... it affects us all. Where is the grace and compassion?

First, for Urbangirl. One of my favorite quotes, "Bad spellers of the world, untie!" (supposed to read unite). You're not a bad speller, though and don't let that peon get under your skin. Someone so cowardly is not worth a single tear rolling down your beautiful face. Now, my favorite verse, is one you, more often than not, exemplify, "...the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." 1 Peter 3:4

You are the kind of girl any mother would be pleased to call daughter or daughter in law. You are beautiful.

For Julie (and Superman), you have worked hard and raised a beautiful girl. Clearly, that ignoramus has no idea of either beauty or grammar! Don't you let that peon get to you, either. I've yet to find a perfect person in any school, any home, any church, or on any blog. Love you, friend.
