I believe life is about acceptance. We can sit back and moan about the raw deal life has given us or we can accept the cardswe have been dealt and make the most of them.So many times people have asked me how I cope, and truthfully I have days when I wonder myself amongst the chaos and confusion that life in our household involves.

I have three children. One is autistic; he is beautiful, smart,and intuitive in a way that is unique, frustrating, difficult to understand and I love him.Another child is undergoing testing for a rare endocrine disorder which may mean that he will be steroid-dependent to stay alive. It has been a long time since I have been able to see him glowing with the health and vitality that we took for granted six months ago.

I could reject the cards that God has given me but to do that would be to deny myself the part of me that I am most proud of, my children. They may have problems that others see as too big or too difficult, but they are mine. I see their beauty and their love not just for their family but the greater world around them.

The way they look at the world, the beauty they see and the gifts that they bring to my life daily make it very easy to accept the cards dealt to me.For anyone out there who is going through difficulty and having trouble seeing the beauty that is there in all our lives, please have hope and find some time even if for just a few minutes to count the multitude of blessings that God has given us in so many ways.

The issues that are concerning you may not go away; but by accepting them into your life as a part of it and remembering the multitude of blessings we receive in other ways helps you to grow stronger. It is so much easier to accept the blessings but strength and peace comes from accepting both the blessings and the challenges we are given.
