Dear Momma Bear,

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day. For most, it was a day just like every other day. We are tired. We are worried. We are stressed to the max, and we can’t catch a break. Laundry is piling up. Bills need to be paid. We need to drive our kiddos to the next therapy session or extracurricular activity. The list is never ending.

Here’s the thing, Momma Bear. It is time to take a break. Yes, you heard me right. It is time for you to stop what you are doing and take a break. Even if you have to lock yourself in the bathroom with your phone, a chocolate bar, and drink of your choice, give yourself a mommy time-out. You deserve it. You spend so much of your time taking care of everyone else that you end up neglecting a very important person – you! 

People don’t know how we do the things we do, how we live the life we live. They tell us we’re strong. They tell us we’re special because special kids are given to special people. They say these things not be condescending but to be helpful. Of course, we know the truth. We are mothers and, for better or for worse, our number-one priority is our kids. We love them unconditionally and will move mountains to ensure their success in life. We do the things we do – the advocating, the educating, the therapies – because we want the best for our children. It’s not about being strong or special. It’s about being a mom. It’s about making sure our kids are safe. It’s about making sure our kids are accepted. It’s about making sure our kids are loved.

So here’s to us, fellow Momma Bears! We work hard and we love hard. We are determined, loyal, compassionate, and selfless. We smile even when we feel like giving up and crying. We push on through hard times and we never ever give up on our children. We live this life because it is the only one we know. We do it humbly but also with pride. 

So, let’s do us all a favor and take that well-deserved time-out. Hide in a closet for five minutes if you must, but do what you need to do to take care of yourself. You are worth it. I am worth it. WE are worth it! 

Hope you all had a Happy Mother’s Day!

“Autism is full of ups and downs and because of it I have more patience than I used to and can appreciate the "little" things in life.”

I have something important to share, for over 4 years now of my marriage i have been trying to get pregnant, this almost made my husband to divorce me because my mother in-law was planning to get him another girl, i was always crying everyday because my marital life way going down. My mother in-law made my husband believe that i was the cause of us being able to give birth, i was always crying, my heart was broken into pieces. My husband and I have been seeing a fertility specialist. We have done one IUI with no luck. My husband has a sperm count which goes up and down, the doctor has recommended him taking the Preseed supplement which he is doing over 3 years with no change in the situation my husband who has low sperm count? It just seems to me that if the sperm are unable to fertilize the egg it will not matter how many are produced. I am was so confused until i contacted this powerful spiritual coven online who I saw a number of testimonies of how he has help so many of them so I sent Mallam Abudu coven a mail and I told them all my sorrows and pain they replied me and ask me not to cry any more that they will help, the sent me some instructions and caution, Mallam Abudu performed the ritual rights and send me a spiritual medicine, they told me to have sex with my husband within 2weeks of doing this I felt dizzy and I went to the doctor and it was confirm that I was pregnant thanks to Mallam Abudu spiritual waters powers now am a mother of a bouncing baby boy and joy has been restored to my marital life and am very happy, no more stress from my mother in-law. If any one needs such help don’t wait all life time to get help in getting pregnant contact Mallam Abudu now on his personal email : mallamabuduspiritualhome@gmail.com Or whatsapp them on +2349055637784
