A blog everyone should be reading...

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.
