I just got home from seeing The Hunger Games (I was one of those anxious legions of fans for the books - the movie didn't disappoint.) As we were leaving, Jim noticed the young woman who is my son's aide at school, someone who I just think I am so blessed to call a friend. This young woman has an amazing spirit, intelligence, and beauty. She is a good ten or fifteen years younger than I am, but with the energy and faith to change the world in the best of ways. With her was a friend named Trinity... I read her blog. Everyone should. She is not a special needs mom, but her words have helped pull me out of the great funk of my life. It's hard to think of God having a plan when you are dealt a bad hand in life or you have faced a tragedy. I don't know which I perceived my situation with Jimmy to be, but her grace and faith have taught me that our great struggles and burdens can be incredible blessings.
