In the past few weeks my prayers have changed from having a child that is my idea of "perfect" to asking God for the blessing of His idea of "perfect!" Ultimately He does know what is best for us. I guess that we all have a view of what we think our life will look like in the future and situations in our lives end up changing all that. A friend of mine sent me an inbox message on facebook the other day with this, "I can't remember which of my relatives or friends who once posted that having a child with severe delays or medical issues is much like planning a trip to Italy and ending up in Denmark. Both are exotic, interesting, and wonderful places. It's just that one is the place you planned for, dreamed about, and the other is not. The joy in exploring the unplanned Denmark may outweigh the planned trip to Italy." I guess we feel like we have just boarded the plane and just found out that we are going to the wrong destination. Now it is just waiting to get there and see what it will be like.
While I was listening to a CD I made a last year I revisited this song and it had a brand new meaning for me.
I once again can't post without thanking all of you for your prayers and support. Your prayers, calls, cards, kind words, food and everything else you have done to show us support uplifts us daily! We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives! WE LOVE YOU ALL!
