Hi friends! I’m glad you’re here! I created this blog to encourage fellow mamas with children with special needs to embrace this special needs parenting journey. But eventually I realized that the things I was writing would be encouraging for any person going through a difficult circumstance, and so I began writing posts about trusting God regardless of your circumstances. But about once a month I do write a post specifically for us special needs mamas. We need to stick together, right?
I have two beautiful boys. They are precious and sweet and entertaining and complete blessings in my life. But between the two of them, we are at eleven diagnoses and counting. My life was filled with therapies and specialists, with anxiety and depression, with loneliness and anger toward God. And one day, while asking God yet again “Why?” He whispered just one word to my anxious, grieving heart….
“Embrace what?” I wondered. And for the next hour or so, God revealed area after area of my life that I needed to embrace. I wish I had written it at all down at the time, but I don’t think my pen would have flown across the pages fast enough. I was convicted. Encouraged. Loved by the God of the universe.
He would gently remind me of something I needed to embrace fully in my life. Something that I needed to not only accept, but cherish. My role as a mother. My husband. My children. Their diagnoses. Their progress. Their personalities. This special needs journey. Myself. And most importantly, God. My perspective was transformed to the Biblical, rather than the worldly way of doing things that I’d been trying to do unsuccessfully for years.
And that, is what this blog is all about. Things I’m learning on my journey to embrace this special life I’ve been given. I’m glad you’ve stopped by to join me on this journey!
I’m excited we can learn to embrace this special needs parenting journey together. 🙂
