i cant pinpoint when it happened.
when my life became so different.
but it has changed so much.
all of those little letters....make up the life i live. the life my children live.
some days it is all consuming. other days i almost forget.
most days i am sure that the only three letters that really matter are:
He has a plan and a purpose.
He is Healer
He is Comforter
He has all I need
dont get me wrong. we do the appointments. we have a support team.
we get kicked out of sunday school and not invited to parties....grandparents are scared.
but we carry on. doing what we know to do. finding out what else we can do.
we explain the letters to the kids who have them and the kids who live with them
we will not be defined by this. we will not make excuses
we are working on it
we learn compassion
we learn to ask for help
we learn to not judge others because we dont know what they have been through
we find out we are strong
we find out we are weak
we find out WE ARE NOT ALONE
stupid letters are nothing compared to the GOD we serve.
and the kids we love.
and those who share this crazy this journey with us.
