Hey! We’re back!
First, THE BOOK. We have about 6 people who said they are in (and I’ll be emailing everyone this week to get started).
Now, if you have a post or two that you’d like to see in the book compilation, that’s fine. If you have the whole series that you’d like to see in the book compilation, that’s fine. There is no limit or restrictions. Personally, I care far more about quality over quantity.
So, if you want to participate or have questions that you need answered before you can, just contact me using the form right here:[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
On to the Series!

* all links are still open if you’d like to participate *
Golden Moments: the pure joy moments, the moments with unicorns and glitter, or the moments that time just stands still as you look at your child and see their beauty shining. Moments that make you grateful to be alive, moments that you treasure and hold dear.
Is it the old man who reached forth and touched your child’s hair, smiling, and said, “never worry about her; God takes care of His own”, is it the feeling that makes you burst inside when you see your child included and accepted? Or is it YOU, is it how you feel when you make friends with someone with your same disability, someone who *gets* it on every level? Or is it
“golden” as in, “funny”, like the time you were making out and your hearing aids went off on wild feedback and the guy was trying to figure out what the sound was and you didn’t hear it (and even if you did you wouldn’t have done anything since you were trying to pass as non-deaf…) and it turned into this completely hilarious moment?
Golden Moments. Tell us yours. However you want to interpret it. However you want to write about it. Tell it to us.
The writing prompt is optional:
If you’d rather just post the link to another post you’ve written, that’s fine. You do not need to follow the prompt!
