How Do I Do it? Grace and Whiskey!

whiskey sundayHow do I do it? Grace and whiskey.

Through the years, several friends have said to me, “I don’t know how you do it.”  I muster as much southern grace as I can to deal with life’s difficulties when they inevitably come my way. As the parent of a child with high functioning autism and the daughter of someone with schizo-affective disorder, I have had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with many families whose children and loved ones are dealing with complex medical needs and much more severe forms of neurological and mental disorders. I feel so very fortunate that my child is high functioning enough to respond to and benefit from the myriad of interventions that we have made available to her, and I feel for those whose family members will not be able to progress as she has. While high functioning autism has brought us certain difficulties, it has certainly brought us many gifts, including a better perspective on how to have fun whenever and wherever we can and repeated lessons in not sweating the small stuff. When I run out of grace, there’s always whiskey.

In actuality, I don’t drink whiskey very often, but when I do, it’s always delicious and always fun! We love whiskey and bourbon here at Grace and Whiskey. Tell me, what brand should I try next?

    Wild Turkey! A must for those less than pretentious and let it go moments. Also Buffalo Trace, my go to when I don’t have Makers Mark in my budget 🙂 My husband doesn’t like bourbon, but he makes an exception for Four Roses and Filibuster. Four Roses is out of New Orleans from a fantastic restaurant called Arnauds, and Filibuster is, appropriately, from Washington D.C.
