I’ve recently thought if changing the title of my blog to that -raw diary of a special needs parent. But then how would that actually be encouraging and inspirational?
I don’t want to drag others down with me but at the same time, seeing that someone else is going through a rough time, I know, can actually be encouraging In a weird way.
Even as I write this, I’m hearing David moan and sometimes yell out in the other room as he is laying in his hospital bed before the caregiver gets here. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve gone in there this morning to roll him over, reposition him, wipe his forehead and give him medicine.
Sometimes life events don’t come in neat little inspirational packages. Instead, it’s the raw pain of the moment, when written down and reflected upon later that we gain a bit of inspiration and encouragement.
It’s a little hard to concentrate right now with David yelling in the other room so I’ll just go ahead and in these thoughts right here , in the raw.
