Yesterday I sat in the waiting room at my son’s therapy appointment and I observed the other moms that were waiting. One mom sat with her toddler and tried to keep her entertained by playing dominoes. A few moments later, another mom walked in with her two sons. Both boys had autism and I was overwhelmed with questions,emotion and concern. This mom was so patient and calm with her boys. One son entered therapy as the other waited with the rest of us. Her tone stayed the same in spite of his actions. I even overheard her conversation with his school where he had an incident earlier with his teacher. I watched him draw and was amazed at his artwork. Pure brilliance for a 10 year old.It is amazing how God works. He gives us all gifts and it is up to us to use them.
As a mom of three I know how tiring, worrisome, and anxious it can get at times when your kids get out of hand or ill. I thought to myself, how does she do it? Then it hit me. Mothers do it all the time. We love our kids with all we have. We try to give them the best that we can give them. We hope and pray we are all that they need us to be. Each one of us have our daily challenges but we also have a common bond and that is loving our children. Enjoy each and every day with your loved ones.
Be YOU, Be GREAT
