Remember when I said I would try to respond to every comment? Well, I really am trying but the response is so great I am having a hard time keeping up. Lot's of people are choosing to send me messages through the contact form on the home page of the site. That is ok, but they only come to me privately and are not shared with any of the blog readers (and there are a few of you out there, thank goodness). So, every so often I am going to share a comment (with permission from the sender) that strikes me in some way or just warms my heart like the one below from one of the original members of Team Kate, Hezz:
Well,firstly I want to say I surely must be on team
KATE......as I LOVE her soooooo much. And secondly,I want to tell you how
informative and TOUCHING,your sites on KATES* journey with Autism truly
are. I feel you have a wonderful command of the English language,and you
write with such a depth of feeling,that it seems to create a personal journey
for all who share your personal sites. What an amazing choice both Grace,and
Kate have made in choosing you and Alex for parents.
Perhaps,at some point,further along your journey,you might decide to write childrens*
books........................as you are certainly displaying a talent in that
area in life. And i know you could touch many,many hearts along the
LOVE,HEZZIE.............from TEAM Shanell and Alex.'
As you can see, the love is pouring in and every single comment or email we receive is so appreciated. This comment was especially well-timed because it has been a bit unnerving to share these stories for all to see and those insercurities creep in with regard to my writing. Who wouldn't feel invigorated after reading a comment like this? It makes me want to keep going with this blog. Thanks Hezz, we love you!
