when your "no" turns to "yes"....beautifully rooted

There is a blogging bud that I frequently pray for. I have journeyed along with her via her blog, e-mail, and texting as she has sought help for her son who was recently diagnosed with autism.

As I was praying for her, I had a gut feeling, or what I like to call a God feeling, that I needed to write a prayer for moms of special needs kiddos in order to share and support moms who need some extra "you can do this!" lovin'.

Later while I was in church, I started to think about Hannah again so I took out my phone and I quickly emailed a list of one word reminders so I could go home and type it out.

Once I got home, I sat in my favorite spot, and wrote away.




But I stopped there.

I came up with 100 reasons why I could not hit "publish."

When you get that "no" feeling, it is usually when you need to say "yes" the most.

So please cruise on over to Beautifully Rooted to see what I said "yes" to.

Much love,
Katie

Your transparency brings me to tears. Thanks for the reminder to be careful with our words, and the ok to feel overwhelmed sometimes. You are in my prayers. XoXo

I completely agree with what Kimberlee wrote above; your honesty is such a beautiful thing.

For two years, I worked as a para-pro for autistic children; I spent half of that time with the same client and although it was one of the most fulfilling and rewarding jobs I have ever held, it was also emotionally heart-wrenching; I came home in tears often. I can't say that I understand what it is like to parent a child with special needs 24/7, but I have deep respect for those of you who do. Your patience and understanding is incredible. Luke is so lucky to have you as his Mama.
