Historic

with 19 comments

I woke up today to the news: Osama Bin Laden is dead.

The latest in a series of historic events bringing change all around the world.  I swear I can feel the ground shifting beneath my feet.  I don’t know what the outcome will be of the push for change in the middle east, or what this event will signify for global terrorism, but I can’t help but hope, as always, for a better, safer world.  Perhaps my family will one day be safer because of these events.

In the meantime, we hold on until the plates stop shifting, and maintain vigilance.

April is over.

Autism Awareness continues in my house, and everywhere, every day of every year.  We’ve seen a month of historic change both at the political and personal levels.  Our fight carries on, but so do our triumphs.

We feel the aftershocks, and we keep holding on until the plates stop shifting.

So I begin today like anything other: hopeful and determined.  Celebrating victories, and preparing for the force of the impact.  Change happens, often when we least expect it.

Today both kids wished me a Happy Birthday at their father’s prompting, and gave me a card and gift.  But then after he had left for work, I saw Pudding had found a pen and looked over to see what she was drawing.

She handed me this (empty) envelope, with the words “Happy Birthday Mummy”, and a smile right between the eyes.

This year is going to be a good one

That is historic.
