I did get a picture of Cole being nice this weekend, he's giving his puppy a "kiss".
CLEVELAND 3RD WARD.
I'll I have to say is WOW!!!! My heart is SO full right now. ...let me start off by saying how emotional I've been this last week...I don't think it helps that Cole has been in constant RAGE...I'm not sure how I thought it couldn't get worse, but apparently it can & it has. I feel helpless because nothing is helping his rage right now. Lately I've felt alone & frustrated. There seems to be a pattern every morning, by 7:20am I have been telling the Lord that "I just don't think I can do it today", as Cole is scratching every exposed part of my skin off, pulling my hair out and throwing his food all over me, him and the floor...then I've got to struggle to change his diaper as he is kicking me and banging his head on the floor...then I realized I'm about to be late for work. This is how our mornings go, and by 7:45am I'm crying as I drive to work & praying for the Lord to help me. He always answers my prayers, because I always seem to make it through the day. Today, I truly felt the Lord answer my prayers...we have met some pretty awesome people in Cleveland from our church and today we got the sweetest card with notes from MANY people who we've never met before with SO many kind & caring words. They had a yard sale & donated the proceeds to Cole! Yes, the "ugly cry" came out...and I was SO touched by the love of these women who said they are praying for us & think about us. It was JUST what I needed. I can feel the love of my Saviors arms around me & my family. Not that that wasn't enough, but as I was typing this post...one of our ward members (who is an amazing guy & his mom is wonderful!) dropped off a sweet card & also helped us out with our trip! The experiences that our family has had this last 1 1/2 years has been overwhelming. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. when I tell the Lord "I just don't think I can do it today"....he prompts these amazing & selfless people to come to our rescue, to let us know he is STILL THERE, he KNOWS what we are going through & he WILL lighten our burdens. Thank You to each of you for your love & support towards our family.
