….welcome back to where it all started….. Tales of the Toot was my very first blogging experience and it was such an important outlet for me as well as a great way to keep others informed of what was going on with Aiden (our little Toot) while we were spending so much time in the hospital.
But I have missed having somewhere to share my musings, my thoughts, my experiences. I try to keep Aiden’s site (www.aidenscross.com) and his associated blog, pretty much just about Aiden and keep my personal thoughts/feelings out of it. I miss having that! So here I am!! Back to blog as I wish and decided to keep the name: Tales of the Toot. As much of my day revolves around my little man I am sure there will be many tales of the Tootster here, but this will also be my place: to share my thoughts, prayers, feelings, opinions, etc.
Of course we always think we have important things to share…but I truly believe God has given me Aiden, and the trials in my life for a reason. If not to share, to make a difference somewhere for some other mama, then what for? Surely God can and will make good of everything. Even the incurable and “ultra” rare disease can be used for good.
I have a heart for mothers. All mothers, but especially those dealing with an ill child. I also have a heart for the mother-less. I know what it is like to feel like you have no one to mother you; what it’s like to be afraid that you will not know how to mother as a result of your upbringing. I also know that God has given us everything we need to overcome those fears and I know first hand that God provides us with “spiritual” mothers when our natural mothers will not or cannot fullfil their roles. I pray that one day God will use me as a spiritual mother to someone who needs it and I thank Him for my own spiritual family. They were and are so very important to me.
All of that to say this….I’m not sure exactly where this blog may go. But it is mine! For those of you interested only in Toot news, please continue to follow his progress at www.aidenscross.com. There will be a great mix of Aiden here but also personal stuff on me and my journey as his mother.
Can’t wait to see where this blog takes us……
