out of the ordinary

Wow, I can't believe it! I actually figured out how to work the blog editer. Yay me!
I should probably explain that this was a chalenge for me; why, you ask? Because I have no vision. And while I don't dwell on it, it does make a significant difference in my life as well as the lives of the ones closest to me.
Hi, I am Annie. I am a blind wife and mother of 3 beautiful children. We are a home schooling family, and I am a work from home mom. I am the secretary, teacher, nurse, handy-woman, chef, maid, and CEO of my home.
Oh, I forgot to add mother and wife too. lol While some people may say that it's a thankless job, I beg to differ.
I take my childrens happiness, my husbands comfort, and all of our accomplishments as gratitude for the late nights, messy moments, burned hands, and everything that comes with the job of being a mommy and wife.
Ok, so maybe not so fine and dandy. The truth is I am a human just like anyone else. I have my moments.
I can yell with the best of them, eat junk food like a man on 1 cirtain sunday of the year, and I can deffanetly fall asleep on the "job"
But guess what, that doesn't mean that I don't love my babies and hubby all the same.
Having to feel aroung, listen closely, and keep a sharp sniffer, is another aspect of my life. My children have learned at a young age that
"mommy's eyes don't work."
but they still play tricks, hide, and show me their artwork. I smile every time I get one of these little quirks because I get to pretend I know what they are talking about. But, if nothing else, they build some really exceptional describing skills.
You guessed it ladies and gents, we get by just like, you got it, anyone else.
So, maybe we are different, but you know what? If we were all the same, this world would be one heck of a borring place to be.
My advice:
Learn all you can about the people around you and love them for who they are. Because, you are loved by someone for who you are, and I'll bet dollars to doughnuts, you are nothing like them.
Make it a great day,
