Workin’ for a living

Posted by theothersideofnormal on November 5, 2014 in autism, coping skills |

Beautiful Blessing, Beautiful Curse

Posted by theothersideofnormal on January 28, 2014 in autism, coping skills, family |

  I’ve been waiting to write about this song for some time now.  Paroosing the internet, as I typically do looking for inspiration on days that it’s badly needed, I happened upon this little blessing a few months ago.
