Learn to pause ... or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you.

- Doug King

Hope everyone likes this one!!! It struck me in a certain way, especially where we have a full life with our special needs children. Sometimes I forget to pause. My DH and I "paused" Friday night and went out dancing at the clubs with his visiting Texan cousins. We "partied" until 5 am (which was a big reminder that I'm 32 now and those days are LOOONNNNGGG goneLOL) and basically it was like we didn't have a care in the world. The kids were in good hands, and once we checked to make sure that they were sleeping we just stopped thinking about them and had a great time. Suddenly we're planning a trip to see the Texans when they get married and have a "dance" at their clubs!!!!!! Ahh, the life of party....brings back memories!!!!

Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway.

- Harper Lee

How true this is for many. My daughter cannot sit or walk , and the probability of either of these happening for her (unassisted) is extremely low, but she tries for the stretching and strengthening of her muscles each day...because there is a chance...no matter how small...of one day being able to stand alone. She knows that it won't be any different this time around, but she still has the courage and hope to go on trying. Gosh I Love Her!!!!!
