A big box showed up on our porch and inside were these beautiful flowers and vase from Ez's co-worker and his family. I'm grateful for their thoughtfulness as well as so many others during this time.
The acts of service vary from gifts, to a listening ear, to having someone to hug and cry to. My friends have been so sweet. So many of them ask how they can help and I have a hard time answering that question when I don't even know what I need. Without asking they brought us meals, cried with me, took me to lunch, and listened. One friend suggested making shirts for our girls with special needs for our upcoming race. It was such a wonderful idea and I can't wait to run in it!
Lots of other people say they are praying for us. They say they feel bad because that's all they can do. What they don't know is that it really does help and I'm grateful for their thoughtfulness. After the first few days, all of a sudden I snapped out of it and I feel stronger now than before. I have felt the strength from everyone's prayers. It is real.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
