Sunday Funday

Another lazy day just hanging out with the fam. Sleep in, lounge around, dual surfing between belle and I, hike out to the golden arches (Mcdonalds!), making things, cooking stuff. Sigh. I love bank holidays, they are more relaxed just because of one extra day off work.
I made a couple of kits whilst bumming around and finished this one off whilst on the phone to my friend Traci. We were discussing the book of the moment, The Secret and whilst I am comletely dazzled by it there are a few things I cannot grasp. For instance the Law of Attraction. Whilst I agree that you get what you give, I cannot comprehend how we attracted a daughter with muscular dystrophy. Try hard as I might to understand that it may be a punishment (and belle is not a punishment thank you very much) I cannot understand why. Traci put it all in to perspective for me. She asked if Belle is happy. I said yes she is. Then she said well does it matter? And really she is right. So I took a whole new take on the book from 2 hours on the phone to her. I completely get it and whist the laws of attraction, for me, isn't about the wealth and success a vast majority of readers may wish to dream for, I have 2 little goals that I will see through. They are not materialistic nor are they selfish. And you know what - they will happen. Thats how positive the book sheds light on you. Cool, huh?
Anyway, Im off to bed to watch Pirates of le Caribbean part deux in prep for tomorow part twa at the cinemas. Mark and I have a hot date. At the cinema, thast is. Not in bed. tsk tsk!

Well I'm off to see where I can find that book!!

Kristy, please do not feel it is a punishment it is not. I always say to myself life is a fish bowl of lessons and once we learn from the lesson we are allowed to move on and if we choose not to allow the lesson and learn from it we are to repeat it until its learned. So, life is about the choices we make and none of them are wrong the paths to them are just a wee bit different, but the goodness always comes out of it...I bet Belle has taught you so many things and I bet you have shared so many of them if you tried to sit down and write them it would be endless...I love your blog, I love your since of happiness always with life. Thanks for sharing it!

Thanks so much for the great papers!

Leisa said...

Thanks for the freebie.

Perhaps Belle came into your life to bring you strength and courage.

Thanks for another fab kit Kirsty. Should keep me amused on a damp holiday Monday. Hope you enjoy Pirates and don't get a numb bum - it's about 3hrs long :)

Thanks for another fab kit Kirsty. It should keep me occupied on a dampish holiday Monday afternoon. Enjoy Pirates and I hope you don't get a numb bum - it's about 3hrs long.

Kel said...

Hun, you attracted Ellie because you and Mark are the best parents she could have hoped to be attracted to! Other parents may not have loved her the way you so obviously do, no matter how hard they tried. Traci is absolutely right - if she's happy, who gives a stuff?

And the Metro to Retro looks lush!

Ruth said...

K... This is a little story I have kept with me over the years and with my husband being a Pediatrician, he gives this out to parents more often than he cares to count. I hope I'm not offending you in the slightest by sending it.

Welcome to Holland
I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability - to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this......
When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip - to Italy. You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans. The Coliseum. The Michelangelo David. The gondolas in Venice. You may learn some handy phrases in Italian. It's all very exciting.
After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The flight attendant comes in and says, "Welcome to Holland."
"Holland?!?" you say. "What do you mean Holland?? I signed up for Italy! I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy."
But there's been a change in the flight plan. They've landed in Holland and there you must stay.
The important thing is that they haven't taken you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place, full of pestilence, famine and disease. It's just a different place.
So you must go out and buy new guide books. And you must learn a whole new language. And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met.
It's just a different place. It's slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you've been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around.... and you begin to notice that Holland has windmills....and Holland has tulips. Holland even has Rembrandts.
But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy... and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned."
And the pain of that will never, ever, ever, ever go away... because the loss of that dream is a very very significant loss.
But... if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things ... about Holland.

Jackie said...

Wow Ruth that is just so amazing and made me feel like crying as well.

Pascaline said...

Thanks you...
I've got a new fish on my blog today if you'd like to stop by!

CarolineO said...

What a fantastic piece of writing! In a lot of ways a lot of us have gone to Holland when we wanted Italy as our destination.

Okey I had a tiny bit of a problem posting before so this might appear twice.

I have not heard of the book you are talking about "The Secret", but by what you tell about it, I think it has a very simplistic view of life.

Life is more complicated than "You have what you give" otherwise, there wouldn't be horrendous people having wonderful lifes and wonderful people having terrible experiences in life. You just simply notice that it does not work that way. If things would be that simple you would clearly see that good people would have good experiences through life, and that just simply is not the case. It's more complicated than that.

If you take things in way that giving a bad situation ( your daughter's problem ) you have made the best of the situation, as she is a happy child, yes then you see that all your efforts and care have been paid of. But the fact that your daughter was born with a problem has absolutely nothing to do with you having done anything wrong. Things work following some kind of order but it's just more complicated that what the book says and be completely sure it has absolutely nothing to do with you having done something. And that's for sure.

The fact that your child is a happy child, yes that is the result to your work and your husband's, and considering the circumstances, be sure that you have done something wonderful and really difficult to get.

So don't worry about the book and just look at the great result you have got. You and your husband should be proud of what you have made in a difficult situation.

Best wishes.:o)

Sinead said...

I love the "Welcome to Holland" story. I've heard it before and it's so so true. Beautiful!

Anna-Marie said...

Kirsty: You are so right. Ruth, you have such insight. That should be given to all parents of children with a disability, it was lovely. In fact it should be mandatory for every parent to read, to put their lives into perspective.

Sabrina said...

Thank you for sharing this wonderful pink kit.

Pillowgirl said...

I am a firm believer in the Laws of Attraction. And while you may have "attracted" a child with a disability, I want you to think of the unique blessings that come along with that huge responsibility. Do not forget the joy you feel when your child reaches some milestones other parents just take for granted.

I have a disease in my brain that I only developed over the past couple of years. I learned about the laws of attraction shortly after I found out about my disease... and I too said, "I just don't see how I attracted this horrible condition. How did I bring this pain and worry on myself???" and then as I live each day I realize that it is a blessing that I have come to live a fuller life from. I wake up every day happy to have that day, happy to feel good on the good days, and happy that I know my body and can rest on the bad ones... and it makes each moment with my family and my now 3 year old daughter that much more meaningful. And now I am grateful that I attracted this challenge in my life, so I can appreciate all of the little things that much more.

I hope you always find joy in those things that are unique to your situation. If we all had perfect situations, life would be just too easy and frankly too boring, I think :)

Kristy, just by reading your blog I can see that you have got to be one strong woman. You and your husband as well. It seems to me that you have a lot of this figured out for Belle and she seems to be thriving from what I can tell. I am sending you happy thoughts and blessings for your family and thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and work with all of us ;O)

Khoon Eng said...

Hi Kristy,

Glad that you choose to be positive. Law of Attraction says that You Become What You Think.

Thought creates Feeling, Feeling Determines Action and Action Creates Result. So positive thought is the starting point for Positive result.

Have A Great Week!

Really cute stuff. Thanks for sharing.
