Love has no words

On the tough days when every thing has gone wrong I just want to hide away. Pull the covers up over my head and not come out until it all magically gets better. Being a Mammy means on those days you put the kettle on, pour another cup of courage and fight another day. Doubt and guilt follow me as often as night turns into day. I could be a better mammy, I could spend more time with each of my little ones,  I should be doing more therapy with the boys, I should be giving more attention to Hailey, I could be telling them more often I love them.

Hailey always helps that doubt, guilt and fear fade away. Watching Hailey kiss the top of Conor’s head this morning after he bumped it made be feel so at peace. I must be doing something right. I watched her as I stood quietly to the side as she bent down and gave Conor a soft kiss to the top of his head, rubbing his shoulders she said “It’s ok Bubba (her special name she calls Conor), all better now“. He looked back at her with a sad smile and my heart broke a little more. For all the self doubt I have as a mother to my three lovely little people it fades away when I see how happy they can make each other. [Read more…]

My Forever Love

My Forever Love

Written By Amanda Mc Guinness.

I often look and want to cry,
Wondering how, what and why,
This is not the life I planned for you,
I wonder if you ever feel it too.

I so wanted and wished for you,
Asking god each night to give me; you,
A little girl just for me,
My little best friend, just you and me. [Read more…]

Love without a Voice

Autism Poem

Love without A Voice.

Written by Amanda Mc Guinness.

I long to hear the “I love you’s”
With lots of kisses, or just a few,
A lingering hug, a wave or two,
Anything at all, as long as it’s from you.

Building Strong Children.

Confident children.

We all want our children to be happy & healthy, to live to their fullest potential. We want to know that when we are gone from this world our children will be strong of character, and spirit. Mindful parenting can help our children grow up to be strong adults with an unshakeable core confidence.

What we as parents repeatedly say to our children becomes their “inner voice”. It is this “inner voice”  that helps them to develop their inner confidence. If you repeatedly tell your child they are bad or have little value they grow up believing this to be a true self perception, as your opinion is what they value most and hold to be truest of all others.

We are all so busy in our lives today that I know it can be hard to keep your mind on everything we “should” be doing as parents. I myself can be neglectful of saying how i really feel about my lovely little ones as I try to navigate through a busy day.
