helping one another….

truth is, today wasn’t an easy day. 

i know i never say, “i can’t”, but there’s one little thing i can’t do – i can’t drive. so it’s been stressful trying to arrange rides for my boys as they started their school ESY summer camp. it is only for the mornings, but it means that my mornings are now super crazy trying to get all the kids ready, sunscreened and out the door on time and with the baby too. small world problems, i know.  and most days, this doesn’t bother me. but today, i was feeling a little down wishing there could be more support like there are school buses for special needs kids. unfortunately, there seems to be nothing for kids of special needs parents.

my heart hurt just a little bit wondering if there are any other parents with disabilities out there who are struggling and don’t have a voice or any way to get help. yes, i had my own tantrum moment shouting out that i want to be able to change this situation. 

in no way am i looking for pity, but i am sharing this only because i want the world to know that we need to make this world a better place by looking out for one another and helping each other with compassion and love.

thankfully, i was able to turn to prayer. i believe that in any troubled situation i have the power to change things so i asked what i can do to help others and i prayed for a sign from God that He was still there with me because i was starting to feel like the world didn’t care. 

that is when my day began to fill up with these sweet moments with my children that were healing to my soul… 

Romans 15:1 (MSG)

Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?”
