wings of a friend...

it's been a rather
hard week
for many reasons...
 
 
it felt like i'd been
punched
 in the gut
more than once
life is hard
i get that
but add a child with
mental challenges
 to the mix
and it is often
 heartbreaking
not the disability itself
rather the adults
around us that should
know better
but elect to not think
or just not care
by friday i
was emotionally
about done
so i decided
we needed a break
a quiet night at the pool
before that would
happen though
i had to jump through
a few ridiculous
in the midst of the chaos
we stopped
at the construction site
where a house
 is being built
for sarah
for her grandparents
at first
i had to coax
her out of the car
but once we got
to the back of the lot
all of a sudden
her face illuminated
as she spotted
a beautiful butterfly
she perfectly announced
it was her friend
her enthusiasm
at that moment
was contagious
to the builder
and to me
i have no doubt
kristen flew in
to bring comfort
to us all
for the rest of the day
was perfect
 in everyway

I just found you blog ....I honestly cannot tell you how, but it just showed up on my screen... And bcz I believe God put us on this earth to be right beside each other I wanted to tell you I have been reading your blog for over an hour... I just think the work you have been doing is amazing... Your daughter Sarah is a fighter and I'm so glad she is a living miracle. Thank you for sharing your story and I'll stop by again to read more about you both.
