Sometimes, all you need to get through a situation is just one friend.Just one person who “gets” you.
In the world of parenting high-risk kids, those kind of people can be pretty few and far between.
So, how did I get so
I have several friends I can turn to when I need a hug or a moment to vent. These gals are not afraid of my story – in fact, they can relate. These girls don't shrink back from the ugly truth or gasp in horror when I share the hard stuff. They can discern if I need a shoulder to cry on, a gentle encouragement to face my troubles with grace, or Scripture to set my heart right. They can give advice because they’ve earned my respect. And always… they pray. These are women who’ve been broken before God, pouring their hearts out on behalf of the children they were called to care for. The kind of people who will drop everything and plead my case before the Lover of our souls.
I do not take their friendship for granted. They are a lifeline for me. Some are online, some flesh-and-blood right here in St. Louis. All are dear to me.
You know who you are. Thank you.
I am thankful for my trauma mama comrades.
How about you? Do you have someone who "gets" you? In real life or online?
Blessings to you,
