I am having one of those days. My son has been in rare form all day – crying at the least thing, wanting to be held but NOT TO LONG, he hasn’t eaten much of anything and dove for his bed like it was heaven opening up. His right eye has begun turning in like Lily’s too and that has me nervous.
Little has had a good morning but has been SCREAMING in her bed for the past 45 minutes. It is the kind of scream that makes every nerve in my body physically hurt and the muscles in my neck tighten.
Then I listen to this Dobson thing about autism and it made me cry and cry. During our last visit to the neurologist, Little had autism added to the list of opportunities she faces and then on this recording they, in passing, mentioned the strange sleep patterns of the autistic – – while my little is screaming in her bed downstairs with circles under her eyes from the need to sleep.
To wrap up this emotional spasm, my mom sends me an email from a woman we have been praying for who just got the report that her body is cancer free. In this email she goes on to praise the Lord for His goodness and list verse after verse concerning his faithfullness to answer prayer. I praise Him with her. I rejoice in this GREAT news.
I need a nap.
Becky,>>Sounds like a hard day! I will be praying for you. Going outside was/is always helpful for me when the girls had/have days like the one you described. Get some sleep if you can. We are heading to the beach tomorrow, but I will try to email and send pictures when I return :).
Bad days can be so hard. Being a mom is so overwhelming sometimes. Today isn’t my best day either. I will pray for you and rejoice with you that our Lord is faithful.>>I need a nap, too…
