My life as a super busy wife & a mother to 3 PERFECT children: Chancey, Troy, & Mackenna. Chancey married his high school sweethearts in January. Troy is 7 & just happens to have Down syndrome. He is a handsome ray of sunshine. Mackenna is 3. She is a brilliant, beautiful, spit fire. This blog is about my wonderful, blessed life. Hope you enjoy. God bless!
This blog was inspired by 31 for 21 & is about my wonderful family.

"R" word: When you see approximately 8 medical professionals on a regular basis,& once in a while they throw in "that word" to describe your child's
issue, or you see it written in a file, a little piece of you just
hurts. BUT, in a line at the grocery store, you hear kids giggle, & you
hear that word, you cry a little. Hoping your child didn't hear that
it is a "funny" word or didn't see thempoint. You see a parent, that instead of telling their child that it
is not right to use ugly words, or to hurt a child, they giggle with
them. "Oh, they didn't mean it like that...they weren't talking
about your kid...they were just making a joke, it doesn't hurt
anyone." We all know that WORDS HURT!!! Children die everyday because they are being bullied! It's usually
just words. However, the pain builds. Children all over the
word cry themselves to sleep at night because you think things are
funny. Children die because you don't teach humanity & kindness to your children. Every time
you condone such actions, you put another nail in a child's coffin. It
is no different than any other ugly word! PLEASE, THINK BEFORE
YOU SPEAK! Set an example for your children. Teach your children respect & kindness...make them
better than we are...let them LIVE! ~Thank you, Kimberly Dawn Allen-Strong for posting this on Facebook!
