tiny yellow flowers
smell of grass
bed time kisses
sun peeking thru the trees
smile of a stranger
It is the little things that bring joy.
The little tiny moments are the ones to be cherished.
It does not take much.
Perspective, something that having a severely disabled child brings, something the life that we live with girlie brings
We have faced a GIANT – a giant diagnosis, and all the accompanying giants (doctors, systems, programs, etc.).
Things look different living with the giants.
Our life with girlie forces family life at a slower pace:
- Less activities for the boys
- Slower loading the van to go places
- Slower outings
- Slower meals
The slowness and extra home time force perspective.
Finding those tiny cherished moments takes
Open eyes – open to God’s Word and the World He created,
open to the present, open to others
Trusting heart – trusting God’s plan, trusting His love is good
Willing spirit – willing to be available in the waiting and watching.
Ephesians 1:18 – 19: I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. (NASB)
