Miracles

So, after my last post I felt a little bit like a whiner-baby.  I have to say a great big AMEN to every comment you all posted.  I know many of us are in the same boat, and that, actually, I have it pretty good compared to some.  I have a blah-down-in-the-dumps day every once in a while, but I can't ever ignore the blessing that I receive daily from my Heavenly Father.  Each new day brings it's miracles right along with the struggles.  In fact, the more difficult my situation is, the more miracles I notice.  I'm not talking "get a mysterious check for a very large sum in the mail" miracles or "my son is cured from diabetes" miracles.  I'm talking about "my kids actually LIKE powdered milk so we can rotate through our food storage" miracles and "I found hi-lighters for 19 cents" miracles (we're getting ready to go back to school around here).  We've also had "I got help for my anxiety BEFORE things got rough" miracles and "Our insurance will cover the new, latest and greatest insulin pump" miracles.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, if I've learned anything through the experiences of the last five years it's that we are never alone.  Our Heavenly Father NEVER leaves us alone to deal with the more difficult lessons in life.  He may let us struggle a little bit, but only the very minimum amount of struggle that is necessary for us to grow to be more like Him. He errs on the side of mercy ALWAYS.  As a mother I know that children will never learn to walk if you carry them absolutely everywhere.  But we can hold their hands and help them along until, miraculously, one day they can do it on their own.   I am learning how to do it on my own, but I'm not alone and for that I am profoundly grateful.
