Today I have had many ideas run through my mind. I sometimes find myself so overwhelmed with ideas that I am not sure where to put them. As I watched the kids work on their school activities, I found myself thinking of ways I can help AA succeed. She tends to struggle, more so than the other kids. I often have feelings of sorrow that she has to try so much harder than her siblings, and other children as well. She is only 7 years old and has been through so much in her short little life. These are things I will get into later, as it is difficult to talk about. As I watched today, I thought to myself about all that she has endured. I have always told myself that God knows what we can handle and he has blessed us with AA for a reason. He knows we will give her the care she needs in her life. I also see that though she may struggle, God has given her unbelievable strength. More so than I see in her siblings, more so than I see in other children, and more so than I see in some adults. I know that God is with her through all her struggles and she will endure. As I write this I feel a sense of peace. I am thankful for AA and her strength. I pray everyday she will know that struggles in life make us stronger.
