"My Sunday Blessing"

This has so been on my heart lately .......AGAIN, this thing we call ADHD maybe it's because my son has it, thinking back I can remember when the whirlwind was so present in our home, and in his life, I don't think I could ever have lived with it being a child, these children are such a blessing in so many ways and they have no clue how they touch peoples lives's, as an infant he was very active, even in his crib, and so demanding then too, when he was ready to eat, I had better be ready or else, for a very long time I just thought he was a typical boy, this love climbed before he could walk, but he loved me, if I took off to the store and didn't take him he'd just cry, and hit his head on the door, so I would wind up taking him, "stop giving into him" everyone would say, a very very defiant child"All he needs is a good spanking to let him know who is the boss" I was told by family, as a few years went by and school time came around that's when the trouble started, o man, when my phone would ring and it was the school I got to the point I'd say"I know, I'll be there" people didn't want him around cause of the way he acted, not too many friends, I can remember once he had a birthday party and out of 6 little boys invited only 2 showed up, and those 2 had ADHD! Being a Mom with a child with this gift has it good and bad moments, I got severely depressed to the point I wanted to do 2 things either die or run, my faith kept from doing either and I am so glad I didn't, people just don't understand these blessings, they are very intelligent people when you can crab their brains just so, they're minds and body goes all the time, it's like a train that's out of control, and they have no control, they act or say before they think, well I have that problem and think a few of us do, so whats make them any different, maybe because adults cant take this coming from a child? its called disrespect, they say, these jewels give to others what you give to them, Once when Johnanthon was little, we where in the elevator at work, and he gotten into trouble again.... and I was very upset, that these teachers didn't understand, and they are suppose to be educated on this, he asked me, "Mom, I'm I always going to ADHD?" I looked down at him with sadness in my eyes and shook my head yea, He just looked at me, with his little jeans, and blue t-shirt, with Dale Jr. back pack and said"I'm sorry Mom" "Sorry, sorry for what, you are teaching ALL something, don't ever be sorry for this" John has had some excellent teachers, then not so good one's, I got one reprimanded, he told me once"John, will always be a trouble maker and never be good in life if he you don't get a control on him now" the anger I felt, like boiling water was running through my veins, very calmly I said<"YOU WILL regret saying that to me" I saw this "man" just the other day at work, he was visiting someone, asked how John was, I stood there with a smile, reminded him what he said about him, and said "you know you made me a better mother, and thank you, he's doing excellent, has a 3.33 GPA and is on the golf team at school, and O, don't give your self any credit for any of that" My child with ADHD is my precious gift, that God knew I could handle, and I have learned so much from John, and still am, Thank you Lord, for giving me this child, I don't know, really don't know where Id be with out him or you in my life, I so love you.........

God always knows what we need even if we ourselves do not...let your heart be lifted by the joys you have experienced through your children knowing that their precious and unique ways are a gift from God...and everything they give you will be returned to them through their own children...and this could be taken two ways, both of which I think you can appreciate :)

such a sad thing when others are not educated about behaviors....and sterotype kids because of it.....or they just don't have the patience or the desire to make a difference...and instead lower the child's self esteem and do harm..i'm with you....they are a gift from God....and where would we be without them?
he is one lucky boy to have/had a mommy who was on his side and understood him.....
love you,
