Family Time on Flashback Thursday

Yesterday as I took my walk I saw some of my neighbor's children excitedly running to the pool;  giggling and happy to be with each other.  Unfortunately sometimes moments like these brings me sadness, I wonder why I couldn't have this?   My daughter, who is 26 now, is the love of my life but it never was and never will be like this.  Those simple joyous moments that most takes for granted were always a dream just out of reach for our family.  She has tuberous sclerosis which has caused significant brain damage; 100's of seizures, behavior problems, and she will always be around 5-8 years old.

When I first had Ashley I was not told that there was anything different with her and I can remember having that bliss that only ignorance provides until she was about 3 years.  She didn't look different than other children so it was easy for me to push aside some of the obvious symptoms and go about being a mom.

Oh how I miss those days of ignorant bliss and I miss my beautiful daughter.  She is so strong and has endured so much, she amazes me.  Even though times were very hard while she was growing up time went too fast.  The quality family time we had is so important, because those are the memories I cling too when I have those sad moments thinking about those silly dreams I had before reality hit.

Here's to family time on flashback Thursday.  May all your moments be full of richness and blessings.
