Elise has been consuming my thoughts and life again.
It seems like I had a break for a little bit where life was just "normal." It's hit full force again this last week and I'm afraid will continue this way awhile more. More tests, more therapy, more doctor visits and now we are working with her budget which is way more complex than I ever realized. This involves lots of paperwork and classes I have to attend.
I love quotes. They speak what I feel or tell me just what I need. The latter is what I needed today.
"When I take a small pebble and place it directly in front of my eye, it takes on the appearance of a mighty boulder. It is all I can see. It becomes all-consuming-like the problems of a loved one that affect our lives every waking moment. When the things you realistically can do to help are done, leave the matter in the hands of the Lord and worry no more. Do not feel guilty because you cannot do more. Do not waste your energy on useless worry. The Lord will take the pebble that fills your vision and cast it down...it will then be seen in perspective. You will find peace and happiness and will not neglect others that need you" -Elder Richard G. Scott
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!
