I’ve written here about my own failings as a parent, hopes for my children, my experiences with autism and even stray cats. Sometimes I never know what is going to come out when I hit “new post.” Yet more than that, this blog is about how God has carried me, revealed things to me and even dealt with me on my “autism journey.”

A very lovely lady in the UK nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award.  Sherri Matthews blogs over at A View from My Summer House. Her blog is both beautiful and inspiring. We have since discovered that we share many commonalities including a love for nature, photography, sons with musical interests, children diagnosed with Asperger’s and wouldn’t you know it, black cats!

Sherri inspires me with her story and how open she is about what God has done in her life.

Per my award, I’m obligated to share seven things about myself.

If given a choice between nuts or no nuts I always choose nuts.

I am a sucker for any stray cat, dog or person.

I love quiet time, however living in a house with three men it is indeed a rarity

My favorite color is green

My favorite beverage is sweet tea (southern style, real sugar!)

My favorite Christmas special is Charlie Brown’s Christmas. (How The Grinch Stole Christmas is a very close second)

I feel very fortunate to be sharing this blog with you!

Taking my cue from Sherri, I’m nominating blogs that deal with a subject close to my heart, autism or other mental disorders. The ones I’ve nominated here are informative, insightful and often inspiring. I encourage you to check them out!

Raising 5 Kids with Disabilities and Remaining Sane Blog   (always makes me smile!)

Youth of a Nation: Bent not Broke  (EXCELLENT support for a vast array of disorders)

Weathering the Storm: Overcoming Bipolar Disorder  (lovely blog by a lovely lady)

Coloring Outside the Lines (one family’s journey with ASD)

Adventures in LSD (another family’s personal story about life on the spectrum)

Aspie Story (one man’s story)

AnnKilter (an inspiring and informative viewpoint from years of experience)

I will try my very best to live up to this award.  If God has given me only one thing through this autism experience it is the ability to bend, stretch, and go with the flow…

Well how ‘bout that. Maybe I am versatile after all.

      1. You are so welcome Lilka – how could I not give you this award!

        Getting on with things thank you, slowly! It’s night now so will be off to bed soon. Hope you are having a great day and congratulations once again 🙂


    1. You are such a blessing! Thank you for your kindness and for finding me. I just finished reading your post and sit here dumbfounded as to how my blogging adventure has turned into so much more.

      Much love to you and yours and thank you for my “Christmas present” 🙂


  1. What a very great blessing to me you are Lilka! I am so touched by the lovely things you have shared here about me and I am very humbled indeed, thank you so much.

    Many congratulations on all your richly deserved awards for both your amazingly inspirational blogs.
    I would also say that here again we share more commonalities – being a Brit I love sweet tea, drink it all day long, I love the colour green and Charlie Brown’s Christmas is also one of my all-time favourites!

    I am really thinking that we are soul-sisters 🙂
