Sun-Beams is a collection of links to stories, articles, photos, or videos I have come across that I believe will inspire, inform, or encourage you, as well as my favorite photo posted on my other blog, Violet Film, from the past week.

State Challenges School Using Shock Therapy – Yep. It really does still go on in this country.

Athlete turns challenges into blessings – This story reminds me so much of Sarah Kate.

Young runners rise to the challege in Jacksonville’s ‘One to Grow On’ ultra marathon – I’m a sucker for the marathon stories, of course!

Disabled Mother and Gifted Daughter Lead ‘Regular’ Life – Too often, parents with disabilities are presumed incapable. I’m thrilled to see this story of people supporting this duo.

‘He walks the talk': Man with cerebral palsy helps others reach goals – Another marathoner! But that’s the full story.

Down Syndrome Orphans Find the Reece’s Rainbow Connection – If you’ve been reading for even a little while, you know about Reece’s Rainbow, but I’m linking this article because it is more thorough than what you usually find.

2013/51 - One Step at a Time

When this post goes up, I’ll be running the New Orleans Marathon. It’s a double-redemption race for me, as I was supposed to run it in 2010 (doctor said no because I was 34 weeks pregnant at the time) and it’s also the race I hoped to PR after last month’s disappointing Heat+Humidity at the Disney Marathon. I’m creating this post on Friday afternoon, and unfortunately I feel a cold coming on – what I’d been fearing all week because of Nathan being sick. So say a little prayer for me, or send me good vibes, or sprinkle a little pixie dust. This is my last marathon for awhile (maybe ever) so I’d like to do well.

If you enjoyed this post, download my FREE eBook, There's Sunshine Behind the Cloudsa resource for special needs parents. There’s Sunshine Behind the Clouds: Surviving the Early Years as a Special Needs Mom is for every mother of a child with special needs who is at the beginning of the journey, struggling to gain her footing on ever-shifting sands. It focuses on how to not only survive the emotional roller coaster of special needs parenting, but enjoy the ride.
