The approaching birthday
I love to read the blogs of mom's with DS (or other special needs) kids who are a little older than Tomas. I am so glad to see the sense of thankfulness and gratitude for their children doesn't fade with time. I don't want this sense of wonder and gratefulness to end as he gets older. I love all my children and am grateful for all my children, but Tomas' arrival and the fragileness of his being made me love them MORE. How cool is that?
I try to pray this every morning. I have it taped up near the coffee pot (although, I must admit some mornings my mind is so set on coffee that I forget the prayer)
I thank you, Lord,
for the wonder of my being,
for giving me another day to love and serve you,
and enjoy the awesome beauty of your creation.
May I often think of you during this day.
Inspire everything I say and do this day.
May it all begin from you and,
with your unfailing help,
be carried through for your glory;
through Christ our Lord, Amen.
