I am blessed to have three amazing sisters! One of my sisters found out she was pregnant with identical twins at the age of 41 – ‘Surprise’ just does not begin to cover it! She now has 8 year old twin boys. One of the twins is Autistic. His diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS). My sister also has a 16 year old son and a 20 year old daughter. My niece was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder when she was 14. Yes, my sister has a very full life! She sails through each day with joy, grace, faith and humor.
Before she & her husband started a family she had put herself through college, opened a successful music business and had even given some serious consideration to becoming a writer of children’s books. She sure has some material to work with, let me tell you!
The 4 sisters started a blog a few months ago, mostly to keep up with each others daily lives as a group rather than sending separate emails. It’s mostly just the boring daily grind of life, but sometimes SisterDear3’s posts leave me in stitches. Her sense of humor is marvelous.
I want to share with you a post from our sister blog that she wrote a few days ago that just tickles me to no end, not because it exemplifies Thomas’ Autism, but rather because it’s a window into the mind of a delightful 8 year old little boy. It also gives you an idea of how amazing my sister is.
Good morning all! I woke up at 11:00 last night to the sound of cooking in the kitchen! Chef Thomas apparently woke up and decided to make a pie. He had taken a pie crust out of the cabinet and a brand new jar of Folgers Coffee, full box of salt, and water and was in pie heaven. Jim woke up this am for work and wanted to know why there was no coffee. Poor hubby! No coffee before work! Plenty of pie though!!!! All of you Dears have a wonderful day, I am off to Market Basket! Love #3
By the way, her wonderful husband is a hard-working cop who works many double shifts. When my sister went to the kitchen after he left for work she found his cup in the sink. She also found a used Blueberry tea bag. Poor Jim!
