Just in Time

As I exaggerated the word ooooooooooopen for the seventeenth time in an effort to get Abby to give me some kind of vocalization, I couldn't help but wonder why everything has to be so hard.  Speech, feeding, walking...Abby works so much harder than most other kids and it just doesn't seem fair sometimes.

Then I checked my email tonight in the quiet after the kids went to bed, and I opened up a message from a fellow CCMS mom--a new one!  I actually read several online newspaper articles about this family right after Abby's diagnosis and emailed the writers in an effort to contact the parents, but they didn't have any information.

Isn't it just like God to not only send a CCMS mom to me, but to also send her on a day I could really use a little encouragement?  :)

I have already emailed her back and am looking forward to getting to know her better.  I'm especially excited about the prospect of meeting them one day, since they are fairly close by.  Imagine...Abby will actually meet someone who has the same diagnosis as her!!

As I read your post, I was reminded of all the times that you have written about Abby's stubbornness. God made sure she received an extra dose of tenacity because He knew she would need it! :-)

On the days when Holland just isn't where you want to be, how neat for God to send someone along to help you enjoy the tulips!

Praying for you, grateful for all God has done so far (and for your honesty in sharing the good and the bad), and looking forward to see what He will do in the future.
