Otherwise known as ANGELS right here on earth.
I’ve been a speech-language pathologist for almost 13 years now.
designed for students with autism) and the FAC classrooms (specially
designed for students with intellectual disabilities).
Oh, the stories I could tell!
I really should write a book. The stories would warm your hearts. 🙂
And you know, getting to know the families is such a neat part of the experience,
a part that I never anticipated.
They would do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING for their kids, and they often do.
I of course have always had a heart for these sweet kids.
dedication that these families have for these special kids that they
love so much, so unconditionally.
And you wouldn’t believe the sacrifices they make.
that they pay so much money for (often out of their own pockets).
They are constantly working with and loving on their kids.
They go to bed tired, and they wake up tired (many children with special needs
have a very hard time sleeping).
And they start it all over again the next day.
It’s truly something to witness.
But in addition to all of the sacrifices that are made for the children, in addition to all of the work…
it’s also of extreme importance to note that these precious kids bring their parents and their families SO MUCH JOY!!!
Yes, the kids are blessed by their families.
But in turn the families are also blessed by their kids.
It’s wonderful to see.
beginning of the school year this year prompted me to come up with a way to
celebrate these moms.
They deserve a little celebrating, that’s for sure. 🙂
So….are you all dying to know the specifics of the giveaway?
Well, I’m dying to tell you!
Who is joining forces with me?
Kendra Scott, that’s who!
Hold tight, and I’ll tell you what’s up for grabs in just a bit.
Please share this with everybody you know that could enter this contest!
If you’re a special ed. teacher, send this link to all of your student’s parents.
If your a mom on a forum, share this with all of the forum members!
And if you have a blog or a facebook page that documents your story, please feel free to share those in the comments too! I would love it if special moms could connect this way!
And, in a total bonus that I was not expecting, Kendra Scott’s team sent me some jewelry so I could introduce all of you to what they have to offer!
So, Saturday morning I woke up and took about a bajillion pictures of their amazing jewelry!
SO. MUCH. FUN.
I got dozens (seriously DOZENS) of messages from you ladies after my Friday post about the Kendra Scott Rayne necklace. It seems that many of you have wanted to order a Kendra Scott piece (or pieces) for awhile, but you always get too confused and can’t settle on a color since there are soooo many amazing colors!
And good news, the Kendra Scott site is having FREE GROUND SHIPPING AND FREE RETURNS ON EVERYTHING THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.
No code needed!
Let’s take a closer look below.
The Kendra Scott website has something called a COLOR BAR, and it ROCKS.
You pick out your piece of jewelry, and then you choose the colors and drop them in where you want them for a 100% custom piece of jewelry that is ALL YOURS!
You might have seen this on instagram over the weekend, but this is the ring I designed.
ENTER A FRIEND!
If the comments are anything like the comments last time, be prepared to be
