Christmas Blessing

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Today found us receiving the tiniest bit of hope. Enough hope that I feel like I can breathe.  An answer to prayer. Maybe not the 'total' answer to prayer. But enough. Enough.


My dear friend-ok, full disclosure. This woman does not know me. She has blessed my life in more ways than I can measure, but we've had one email communication and that's all. Anyway...my dear friend, Christine Moers, posted this blessing for mamas of traumatized children on her blog today. It's a blessing I need. I know most of you who read this blog are not parenting traumatized children, but maybe there's something, someone in your life that causes you to need this blessing as well.



"May your legs remember to walk away before your mouth loses its loving voice.

May there be special stolen moments with your neuro-typical children, even if it is when the rest of house is in bed.

May your eyes be magically fixed from rolling as a parade of family and friends question every single choice and interaction you have with your child.

May your mind be filled with the people in your life who DO get it and DO support you, because they are the gifts that keep on giving all year long.

May there be one tiny, but unbelievable hair of a moment, when you find the strength to step outside of the behavior and see your child for who they were born to be, and who they need you to be.

May you find peace, albeit fleeting.

May you find hope.

May you find healing within yourself, again and again, so you can then teach your child how to find their own.

And may the eggnog be spiked."

Amen.
