finding courage.

August 24th | older posts

finding-courage-21Although I see so many blessings in my life, some days I just want to wrap a feather comforter around me and hide away.  Anything from a difficult diagnosis to a bad hair day can make me feel overwhelmed. And it seems to hit out of nowhere.  I remember when David was born…

it’s my day to post at (in)courage.  you can read the rest of this post over here…

    I understand what you mean and also the only way for me to go ahead is to smile and… hide even more down my comforter…

    Thank you for sharing this – I have just today discovered your site (through Soule Mama) and have been amazed at your beautiful creations. I too was born with only two fingers on one hand (right) and a thumb, I won’t tell you my entire story, but I spent my whole childhood wanting to meet “someone like me” and never did. I have now, long, come to the place where I am no longer ashamed of my hand (am right handed and so it is visible a lot) and have come through not being able to look at my hand myself, to actually being comfortable showing it to those who ask. I am now a Mum with twin daughters and before that had a very successful career – I can testify to the positive side of my disability, as well as the tough times. Because of it, with God’s help, I am strong, determined and very empathetic. My Mum has come through feeling guilty – (there was never anything for her to feel guilty about). I do relate to wanting to hide away with a comforter sometimes too!

    So glad to have found your sight (also through Soulemama). I have a special child as well and there are those days I don’t know how to face it all. Thankfully, I don’t have to:) I just keep re-committing it all into the Lord’s hands. I’ll pray for your son and your unique journey with him.
