I know- seriously. Can you believe it? Like so excited. Really.
Oh wait. I can't start in the middle. I don't know where to start though, and I don't have the right words to express this happy in my heart. Think Greyson jumping for joy over trash truck Wednesday. Yup, that happy.
This past year has taught me some awesome truths.
First, God always has our back. You know how crazy much we love our babes? That's nuthin' compared to how much God loves us. I know- I don't know how that's possible, but it is. I've REALLY realized he will always protect love and take care of Greyson and Parker. That's what I remember when I'm freaking about the future. It's your earthly duty to take care of them now Chrissy, but ultimately, God has this covered. He's crazy about them too.
I've also learned God takes a hell of a lot longer to do things than I sure would. Man does it hurt me in the tiny patience part of my brain. Maybe it's because he's so busy. Maybe because it's actually how the story is supposed to go. Maybe that in between is where much of the very heart of our life lies. Even the uncomfortable in between. Grab it. Embrace it. It's ours for the learning...or not. It's what I struggle with most, and what I learn the most from too. Hmmm, funny.
One day I realized Greyson had autism. And then I realized I couldn't change that fact so I knew I instead just had to change the world. And I had no doubt I totally fricking would- because is there anything that important we wouldn't do for our children? Oh sorry, Grey and Parker- the world is too big and there's just me. No way. And along the way I've agonized with doubt. I've thought my plan stupid and slow moving and unsuccessful. But tonight for a moment I remember, it's all part of the plan. I am here to change the world and shed a light on autism, and ultimately, help anyone who has ever struggled with feeling different. Sounds like all of us at some time or another- right? For many of us-daily. This is exactly how Life is supposed to go at this very moment. Yours and mine.
Let's just breath it in.
So, back to the excited part. My words tonight are being held over Kelle Hampton's blog, Enjoying the Small Things. This woman is a world-changer too. CLICK HERE to read.
