When I started this blog, I was just starting to accept some huge changes in my life. Reviving 'Ada Bea' has helped me reconnect a bit with my Mum, sounds odd I know, but that's how it feels to me!
As Amanda, I have lots of challenges to deal with, many of us have. 'Losing' a beautiful, supportive Mum. Accepting those differences within your child that you've always seen, but thought you didn't really have to acknowledge. Being diagnosed with a condition which is unpredictable, progressive and downright blinking annoying! Coming to terms with the fact I am no longer able do the job I've always loved, and the financial impact that has.
So what's good about being Ada Bea? Quite simply, YOU ARE! The support and encouragement I have received from everyone has been amazing, to say the least! Ada can be creative, put aside for a little while, some of those stresses. This is her happy place, her colourful, flowery world!
Writing this blog is REALLY helping, it's keeping me positive and happy. I'm not sure if that's normal, but I don't care! I love this Bloggy world!
I've been very touched by your comments, so many of you have your own challenges, perhaps that's why we are all here, who knows! I'm just glad I decided to join in!!!
Take care, lovely friends,
Amanda :) x
