So, I've kinda had a long day today. I guess I'm just feeling emotional or tired, or both. Nothing special happened today...just changing diapers, feeding a hungry baby, burping a crying baby who just wants to eat some more, etc. I didn't even put on makeup or fix my hair.
I know I've posted about our daily exercises, but we've added some exercises recommended by the speech therapist we saw Monday. I watched the speech therapist do the exercises with Grace Monday, but I did them for the first time myself today. She.HATED.them. We had major tears. It was so sad. Then I started crying and got sad thinking about all of the extra things we have to do for Grace (which really is nothing compared to some other babies). I just thought why does she have to go through all this and why can't she just be like any other "normal" baby?? I quickly felt extreme guilt for my self pity, because AT LEAST I HAVE A BABY.
I try to be thankful, but it's just plain hard sometimes. But I WILL be thankful for all the blessings in my life, because God has surely showered them on my family and me. I will give thanks to Him because He is good. His mercies are unending and new. His love carries me. He is always faithful and true. He has redeemed my life. He blessed me with a miracle.
This is my new favorite song! Going through everything we have been through since October has given me a new perspective about many things, and this song reminds me of God's faithfulness to us.
