Flushing away my worries with the perspective David gives me.
I would carry this kid to the moon and back if I could. David is my God sent angel and there's nothing this mother wouldn't do for her little warrior prince. David is my strength, my motivation, inspiration, who I learned my courage from, and most importantly he is the one who taught me how to see the world through the eyes of Christ.
There is no other population closer to Christ, the closest it comes to sin free humans. David doesn't know hate, he doesn't see challenges or obstacles, he has no fear, he doesn't notice differences, he just loves and he loves everyone the same, with his whole heart. Pure and genuine, David's motivation is to share his unconditional love with the world.
What an honor it's been to be the one chosen by God to care for him. I was given a unique gift from God that would allow me to see the world from a different perspective. A beautiful and profound perspective!
After a long week of feeling overwhelmed and defeated I look at David's smile and I am reminded that no obstacle will ever be too big for us. I know that I have to keep smiling and sharing love to honor David's journey.
As I lay all my burdens at the feet of my Lord and Savior, God takes all of my sorrows and allows me to find delight in my beautiful and extraordinary son.

18 years later and it still just as difficult when I have to kiss him goodbye as David's put under and off for a procedure. Even mild procedures still require me handing my precious child off to somebody else and praying that God take the wheel. The only way I get through it is to imagine that I'm hand David into the arms of Jesus. This requires believing in his promises to us and standing firm on the word of God. We are trustful that God protect us.

God is so incredible. He never ceases to amaze me with all the abundant blessings he pours into our lives! Public speaking and sharing our story always empowers me. It is a gentle reminder of how far we've come and all he is done for us. I am so grateful for all the amazing friends and cheerleaders got his planted in our lives to help us get to where we are today.
