31 for 21....day 5


October 2006
Some people complain that God put thorns on roses, while others praise HIM for putting roses on thorns. -Anonymous
God gave us the wonderful ability to make choices. Like the statement above it's all in the way we look at the rose, much like DS. If we only sought the negative of the thorns, we would miss out on the beauty and the pleasant aroma. If you choose to look at the negatives of DS you would miss out on...... love that runs deep, looking at life at a slower pace, enjoying the small stuff like bubbles, rain, bugs, a sticker, a ride to Wal-Mart, balloons, and parties....any ones party. Oh' the life with a DS child has given us the chance to see life at a slower pace. When we get going to fast it has a way of catching us and putting us back on track.....Thankful for God's gentle hand and a son with DS!
