Such strength....

Thank you for sharing this, Katie. I don’t claim to understand your situation and pain, but as a chronic pain sufferer myself who is raising children, I am always “foreboding joy”. Preparing for the worst that could happen to myself and robbing my family off of the joy, as if it can be justified for love (protecting them from “just-in-case” mummy gets a migraine scenarios) when they are cheering me on with their strength and courage. So from that perspective, I share in your sharing about “foreboding joy”. Grateful for you!

Thank You.

“It’s OK to believe the best for her life.”
You put it so well, I struggle with needing to be more prepared for any bad situation that might arise instead of enjoying believing God is true and good things are for her....

Oh Stephanie I understand so well! Thanks for sharing. It’s a practice and process of turning it over daily, yes?

I have a son with disabilities and thinking of the future occasionally crippled me spiritually.... thank you for sharing and inspiring me.
