Jacob's Journey

"The mind gets distracted in all sorts of ways.  The heart is its own exclusive concern and diversion." ~Malcom de Chazal

Today I started a new page for Jacob's journey.  If you've been following the blog or you know me personally, you know that although Jacob can be the sweetest, most charming child in the world, he is usually quite a handful.  He has recently been diagnosed with ADHD.  It has been a very difficult decision for me to place him on medication, but he is having extreme concentration problems in school.  So I finally gave in.  Jacob's Journey is a journal of what changes we see through this process.  I'm hoping for the best.  Maybe I'll be able to help someone else with what I learn.  Oh, and yes, that's Jacob in the picture.  This is advancement day at Karate and he's using his old belt as binoculars.  
You can read updates by clicking on the Jacob's Journey tab above.  Yeah, right up there.


  1. Been there with my son so I do empathize with you. It's a very difficult road but stay on course and don't let his teachers dump it all on you. They can help too but they need better understanding. Let me know if I can be of any help. Mike is now 29 so I've gone the gambit! Happy New Year and hugs.

  2. I think it's been said-
    "It's not about the destination as much as the 'journey'"

    But, what do I know!
