The World

I thought I would have to teach my daughter about the world. It turns out I have to teach the world about my daughter. They see a girl who is special needs. I see a miracle who is special .

These words ring more truth then one realizes. Sometimes we don't see the gold that God has laid down at our feet. I know that when I truly stop to think about the gold that God has given me it amazes me. I stand in AWE of Mighty Z.

It is hard to teach the world about My Mighty Z. They don't see her as the treasure that I see. They don't see how strong, how brave, how courageous, how whole she is.

The world sees her as broken.

The world doesn't know what to say and so they just stare

I have been given Mighty Z who in all accounts shouldn't have made it,  I know the hardship and joy of a child who is dependant on machines for her very life.. I know what it is to grieve for the healthy child I was supposed to have.  I have been given so much in life I must give it back.

People think I am crazy to work all night being Mighty Z's nurse and then up and volunteer at a shelter for abused and neglected children ( because I was in a shelter as a child) volunteer at Rise because I was given a cchs child and I know the hardship and joy of a child who is globally delayed..

Luke 12:48 says.....When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.

When I truly look at how my life has evolved I see that I have been given the world
