It has been a long, long time since I ventured to the old site and learned that the board had moved to this site, so I rejoined.
My name is Beth and I'm 42 yrs old and I'm also an austic, recently found out this past January with a visit to my doctor with my dad, who revealed that at age 4, the people who did our IQ test that I should be placed in a mental instutation and forgotten as I'll never be normal. My mom refused and raised me as good as she could.
The last year and a half was really hard for my family and me, on October 7, 2011, we found out that my mom had tongue cancer. We went on an aggressive attack on it with chemo and radiation. But sadly, on March 10th, 2012, all treatments were called off and my mom was placed on hospice that night. Two months and two days later, at 5:35pm at Lake Regional Hospital, my mom left us for God's gardens.
During that time, I did NaNoWriMo, to help me cope with the impending loss of my mother. I ended up surpassing my previous goal of 63k by reaching 71k with six different stories, one of them being a story where a family is contending with the same issues that my family went through but as soon as I got done with the first page, I had to throw it out as it was not how my mom would have liked her funeral to be, so I focused my attentions on my other stories.
On August 7, 2012, I met and spoke with God, himself, after ranting and raving at Him, cussing Him out in all the nasty terms I knew of, for taking my mom away from me. When I took time to breath after my screaming rant at him. I heard a male voice ask me, "Did you not treasure those 12 years that you had with your mother?" I didn't have any radio on, my cell phone was turned off and in my purse and where I had it was on the passenger seat. I got out of my vehicle and looked around the pasture where I was practicing driving at, looked under the car for anything that would be projecting voices into my car. There was nothing in my car. I sat back down in the driver's seat and turned to look in the passenger seat and placed my hand over it to feel a cold spot there. I asked the spot who are you and the voice replied, you've been calling me names for the past ten minutes. I know how you feel, I lost my only son. Even though I have him by my side, I still lost him. We spoke for a few minutes, and he repeated his first question to me and I told him that I did and I didn't really want to lose her. He gave me comfort even though I called him all those names, He didn't hate me for it. He was there for me. I thanked him for coming and letting me know that she was okay and that He didn't hate me for what I said about him.
The following Monday August 13, 2012, I went into town with my dad with me driving as I was still a permit driver, I went in to take the driver's test. About an hour and half later, I came back to the building with a passing test. I am now officially a driver and have been driving ever since.
On December 16, 2012, I was formally baptized as a child of God and have been attending church since August 19, 2012 and before this visit happened, I never attended church on a weekly basis or more like never, the only time we would enter a church is for a wedding or a funeral. I've found my forever church home who welcomed me warmly into their church and I found myself gaining a new sense about me and how I communicate with others. I feel more at peace than I did before I found this church.
I write original and fanfiction stories.
I am currently working on five original stories and I've ventured into three realms that I never thought that I would do - poetry, children's novels and writing a story concerning Jesus on the POV of one of the many children who He met with before He was murdered by the Romans.
