Welcome to 31 Days of Restoration. In the days ahead, I hope to bring you spiritual and emotional support as you raise your child with special needs.
Over the years, I have heard parents express many of the same emotions — some of which I experience myself. Sometimes all in the same day. I have felt just as fragile, just as vulnerable, and just as bruised and banged up as you have.
But, from moment to moment, day to day, I make the conscious decision to pick myself up no matter the struggle.
In this series, I validate everything that you do, everything that you are, and everything that you are meant to become on this journey. In acknowledging the most profound emotions we experience as parents of children with disabilities, I bring you comfort through empowering healing intentions for yourself as well as for your child. I share with you how I seek peace, rest, and resolve each and every day of my parenting life. It is the only way I can get up and do it all over again tomorrow.
You can expect:
- recognition of your deepest feelings
- a blurb about why these emotions are common for parents like us
- uplifting affirmations you can recite anytime, anywhere
- empowering intentions for your child
My hope is to:
- encourage you
- inspire you
- help you
- push you
to go further and stay the course longer.
Join me by checking in daily throughout the month of October.
