Today, the Ferrari is parked and the Learjet is warming up on the tarmac. I’m off to Queensland, Australia! (Is the universal Law of Attraction picking up these hints?)

I have the pleasure of chatting with Jacqui Dalling, mom to adorable Moo who has spastic cerebral palsy. She shares her experiences in her blog Terrible Palsy, which is described as:

A condition in which onlookers and people in the community tell parents how terrible life must be raising a physically challenged child. This condition manifests itself through pity and audible sighing of those around you. Terrible Palsy can be deceiving because you can be asymptomatic for weeks, months, or even years, and then just when you and your family are feeling really good about your child, it can present itself in the form of a condescending pat on the head or a blessing from an anonymous busybody. Best known treatment is to carry a list of snappy comebacks in your pocket or a large bag of peanut M & Ms.

Ah, yes, that pity strikes from out of nowhere, at any time! How do you prepare your child for that? I share a few thoughts with Jacqui. Join us for our chat. I’d love to hear your thoughts on dealing with pity.

Good news: my autobiography I’ll Do It Myself is finally available as an ebook! No taxes, no shipping required! Autographed paperback copies are also still available, as well as large-print editions – while supplies last!

Please join me Friday as I fly to Washington, DC! For now, please cast your daily vote so I may win the opportunity to be paid to blog for a year (be sure to click on “Vote for Glenda Watson Hyatt”). Only 110 votes needed to take fourth place. Together, we can achieve that today. Thanks kindly!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.
