My Heart Hurts

The reality of my daughter's disability hit home at the IEP meeting a few days ago. I know, she brings many blessings and I should look at all of the positive aspects of the situation. But isn't it okay to say that my heart aches for the "normal-ness" that I dreamed about for her? Do any other parents struggle with this?

Hidden Blessings

I find it hard to see everyone attend Christmas concerts and go to many Christmas dinners while I consider if it's worth it to attend the same things because what if Savanah catches another cold or the flu which then makes it such a struggle for her to breathe and eat ... and yet I believe that God has seen my tears.

What Do You Hear?

I often wonder what it will be like if someday I face dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Perhaps my future will be like a house of mirrors; with all the voices playing tricks on me. Regardless, I am confident I will be able to hear my Father's voice.

One of the sessions at the Disability Concerns Conference I went to talked about a different kind of gift survey they did in their church, where they matched people up with a specific task and what the member offered to do. I was wondering if I could have that list of tasks so I can help develop one for our church.
