A Little Bit of BRILLIANCE!


BRILLIANCE:  extreme brightness or radiance; imposing splendor or magnificence

I have never really thought of myself as a writer, and I guess this blog proves it.  I always think about writing, believe it or not, but most of the time I am keeping up with the little time passers that make life so interesting.  I really do wish I was a better writer, but I am not….I am too busy playing MOM :)…I am a good mom so that probably makes me feel a little bit better about the fact that I am not great at everything else.

Today I watched the movie Eat, Pray, Love and it got me thinking.  How many people do you think have watched that movie wanted to order a pizza and build a meditation room, LOL.  Although the movie reminded me of someone very close to me, I can’t believe that I finished the movie with an abstract plan about how to start meditating.  IF ONLY I HAD MORE TIME.

The funny thing is, a few minutes later my kids were running through the house playing tag with the dogs.  I have to admit I haven’t ever experienced the game quite like this.  My oldest had a friend staying the night and my youngest doesn’t get the rules of the game very well, so the girls all decided to include the dogs. I think they figured it would make the game a little more fun.  The dogs thought it was GREAT, running though the house wagging their tails and tagging people.  I watched them all giggle and play together and it made me smile. 

Some days being a Mom is hard work, other days it is just plain daunting.  A Mom of a special needs daughter, has moments that just break you down to the core and ask, “why do kids have to go through this?”……Other days life has a BRILLIANCE that can not be expressed in words and you are touched deep into your soul, and for just a moment…..EVERYTHING IS PERFECT!  Today is a Brilliant day.  Who knows what will happen tomorrow, but for now I am radiating love and happiness from the inside out.
