Everything is for a Reason

A good friend directed me to a blog this past summer that had this quote on it, and it struck a chord with me. It made me feel a little less hopeless, and a little more secure in my job as Andy's Mom.

"God does not give us more than we can handle. He gave us His special children because He knew that we would be able to handle them and give them all the love and support they need through the hard times and the happy, yet stressful times. He believes in us; we can do it! Our children need us. Take a deep breath, sit back and know that through these times we are not alone; He is always just a prayer away."

This is the hardest thing I will ever do. But I will continue to work everyday to make his life easier, to give him the best possible chance to succeed. Because I am his Mom and that is what Moms do.


  1. What a beautiful quote! I was sent over here from Sweet as Punkin Pie and am following you now. My middle son struggles with this.

  2. That's an awesome quote! I also found you thru Sweet as Punkin Pie.

    My son has Down Syndrome, mild autistic behaviors & SPD. Reading through your posts has been amazing. I've found so few people out there that really get it & it's nice to find someone who does.

  3. Hi Brandi,

    Another SPD mom--welcome to the "club"! :)

    I look forward to hearing more about your family--if I can help you with anything, please feel free to let me know!

    Take care,
