Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. Helen Keller.
Peter had a tough morning, and therefore so did I. I was feeling pretty discouraged, so I went to Curves to exercise. The gals had posted this quote on the board. At another time, I might feel the quote a bit trite, but it was just what I needed to hear at the time. Especially from Helen Keller. Hope is a virtue, because it’s hard. Some of it is a matter of will.
Ever tried counting your blessings to cheer yourself up? So then, I tried recalling all the positive steps forward that Peter has made this year. It’s getting close to his IEP time, so the exercise is also practical. I visualized him skiing, biking and stopping, and actually playing in the pool with a peer.
Then the clouds broke and the sun went back on my face. Thanks be to God who gives us the strength to keep trying!
