Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah Zip-a-Dee-Ay

My, oh my, what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine, headin' my way,
Today is going to be a good day.

Want to know how I know that?

Because today is the second Thursday of the month.

And on the second Thursday of every month, my Moms of Special Needs Kids group (MOSK) meets.

Since I was invited to join this group by a sweet friend almost a year ago now, I have not missed but one meeting.  And that's only because we were in California for our very first appointment with Dr. Goldberg.

There is just something so incredibly amazing about spending a couple of hours with a group of people who just "get it".  People who know where you're coming from.  People who aren't shocked when you share your deepest, darkest worries and fears.  People who celebrate all the little (and not so little!) victories with you that so many others take for granted.

These ladies are my people.  My tribe.  My friends.  My heroes.

And when I spend time with these lovely women, my soul is soothed. 

I am one very blessed lady.  

I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by such a supportive community of friends.  Some I see in my "real life".  And some, I see through a computer screen.  Some, I can reach out and hug their kiddos.  And others, I see their precious children through pictures.

For those who I see often and for those who I may never meet, I'm so grateful to know that you are here, sharing this journey with me.


Today is a good day.


  1. Happy Thursday through the computer screen, my friend! Lucky to have you around to share my journey too! <3

  2. Wow... Sounds like a great group!

    I gotta ditto Karen on her sentiment too... It's always a better day with our little interweb support group too :-)

  3. plus don't forget all the drinking. . .

  4. First off, that song just made me smile. Secondly, it's also my day to meet with my MOPS special needs moms group.

    But yeah....I don't think I could get through all of these other days without my bloggy buddies!
