Don't Sell Yourself Short

I go through THIS scenario a lot:

So if you've ever felt like Eve's friend.....

Don't sell yourself short! YOU would do what you had to do for your child too!

Just like me.

But I WILL say this: if I didn't have God to turn to, I wouldn't have the composure, the joy, and the peace that I have ALL THE TIME. People say that I handle my situation in life well, but I dare say that if I didn't have my Faith, I would be a miserable, cantakerous person during those "hard times". And perhaps, no one would blame me. Yet, because I'm NOT like that, don't think that I'm extraordinary.

I have God. Period.

What do YOU have? How would YOU handle MY situation?

I love that cartoon. It describes many parents I know, but especially you. I truly don't understand how anyone can make it through trying times without Faith. God is so good if we will just let Him be. Thank you for sharing your story but most of all, thank you for sharing your blessing - Michaela.

That is the perfect cartoon. I almost get sick of people asking me 'how I do it' with three kids, two of which with special needs. I obviously never give the right response because I get the same comments from the same people. Yes I appreciate the fact that they notice how hard I work for my kids, to get them the services and help they need, BUT, I am only doing what any parent would do faced with the same situation. Thanks for sharing this...

I love that cartoon. I get people saying stuff like that to me all the time and it frustrates the heck out of me. The challenges they go through are just as challenging to them.

I was just about to comment on this by saying... I too have God. But I also have you, Kell.

You are "my partner" in this thing too.

I really appreciate you and the help you've been to me.
