Do you have an “X”? A burden you have to carry? A cross?

Little number 1 does. As of today. My momma heart aches.

I will help him carry it. I must. One day he will get tired of carrying it. He must. Forever.

Yes, I am thankful he does not have cancer. Or diabetes. Or asthma.

But this “X”. We expected it, but this child is such a miracle. We thought he would not have to carry “X” at 2 and 1/2.

Tomorrow is my birthday. The day we start a new normal.


Psalm 38:21-22 Do not forsake me, O LORD! O my God, be not far from me! Make haste to help me, O LORD, my salvation.
