Counting Blessings

I appreciate all the words of support that I've received since my last post. I know that some things are ugly but true and I've found that some things are toxic to keep bottled up.

I am continually amazed at the grace and love that people show me. I am far from perfect and, like the rest of us sinners, deserve nothing but punishment from a just God, but He is also merciful, and for that, this sinner is grateful.

I am so blessed to see my little boy and his "bwak wab" lay their heads down next to one another each night. Stitch is truly an angel with fur on. His gifts to us are God's gifts to him: his patience, love, energy and intelligence. Thank you to those of you who actively helped bring him home and to those of you who continue to support us as we strive to give him the care he needs.

I am blessed to have friends, old and new, who will stand beside me and say "I love you" even when I am unlovable.

I am blessed to have the vision that people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. And that whichever it is, that person's presence is a part of the bigger picture.

I am blessed to have wonderful children who love me unconditionally.

I am blessed to live in a free country, where I can speak my mind (as I often do), and worship freely.

Count your blessings… I'm still counting mine. Love, Claudia
