Autism Podcast: The Unexpected Gift (Part 1)

Hey everyone! I’m SOOO EXCITED to share that I was interviewed recently for a podcast. It is a 3 part series called on Autism. The first episode, called Autism:  The Unexpected Gift is now available on itunes. I was interviewed by my good friend Joy Anisa, who lives in NC and is a wonderful speaker…

Weeds or Wildflowers?

My girls recently came home from an outdoor adventure with a bunch of wildflowers.  They were so excited about all the colors and styles and set to work arranging a beautiful bouquet.  I told them that most people consider wildflowers to be weeds.  They were not happy about this and took offense that anyone would…

Autism Awareness

Since April is Autism Awareness Month I have been posting some videos to give family and friends a view into our world.  It is not a perfect world and can be crazy at times, but it is our world and we are privileged to be a at this season of life at this time.  If…

When History Repeats Itself

For several months I have been doing a chronological reading of the history of the nation of Israel.  As I read through the pages of scripture I see God revealing Himself to His people and I see His people responding in various ways to Him and their culture. One of the most pivotal moments in…

Too Much and Not Enough

Last night Cadence had a complete meltdown.  Screaming, smacking her head with her fists, crying, the whole bit.  When these things happen, my other kids run to the hills. Especially my youngest girls.  They go and hide in their rooms or under the kitchen table.  It scares them.  And truthfully, it scares me.  Cadence is…

To be Understood

Because my oldest girl is autistic she is, for the most part, non-verbal.  She can repeat words, but rarely ever uses them to actually communicate.  Cadence is 13 now and I have always tried to be a good student of who she is so I can discern her wants and needs.  If you have children,…

The Problem with Bathtubs

Yesterday morning was crazy.  I couldn’t get my kids to wake up and get ready for school and the morning got off to a rough start.  And then got rougher.  My kids leave for school in shifts and after getting the first set off I went to check on Cadence to make sure she was…

The Scoreboard Doesn’t Tell the Whole Story

My middle girl started 6th grade this year and began playing basketball this season. I love basketball. My husband and I both played basketball in school, so we are thrilled to be basketball parents for as long as we have kids interested in playing. We load up the whole family for all the home games…

Mama Needs a New Pair of Shoes

I recently had a flare up of Plantar Fasciitis.  For those of you who have experienced this, you know it is no fun at all and can be quite painful.  I started having trouble a few months back when I started a new job and began wearing a shoe with a small heel. Now mind…

Watching the Impossible

Two years ago my 6 year old made a request.  She wanted to go to Sea World.  Unfortunately, I just didn’t see that happening.  The Post clan has been blessed with God’s provision of all that we need and some of our wants, but a trip to Sea World is a pricey endeavor for a…

I Didn’t Know

Two years ago I wrote my first blog post, because of my daughter Cadence.  She has shown us first hand the challenges of living with Autism (challenging for her, our other children and ourselves) but I started writing this blog because I wanted to offer hope to others.  I have been honest about some of…

20 Years Later

Today is a special day.  According to my middle daughter it is mine and her Dad’s “meet-a-versary”.  December 2, 1995, I was a college student in VA, who went to a wedding with my best friend in NC, where she introduced me to her cousin from OH.  18 months later her cousin and I were…
