#MySundayPhoto



This morning, as I tied an apron around my son's waist, I felt extreme sadness that he is profoundly disabled.

I am thankful he is not aware that he is missing out on all the wonderful things that life has to offer. I am fortunate that he is the most sweetest, gentlest young man who is happy within himself.

My son is the rose and my feelings are the thorns. He grows and blossoms, and on occasion one of those thorns gives me a sharp reminder of what I am also missing out on.

  1. Lovely written and true... as much as we are aware that the 'rose' we have is beautiful, that much those 'thorns' hurt...
