A New Hope

No, sorry this is not a Star Wars post. Yesterday GL went to therapy. He has physical and occupational therapy once a week. He has made very good progress these last few weeks, but I was unprepared for what happened yesterday. After GL’s PT and most of his OT, his therapist came out to ask if he could have a snack, she also asked me if I wanted to join them. Thank you Miss S, if you hadn’t asked I may never had known what GL could do. After GL made a peanut butter sandwich (a favourite food which we have been making for years, but thought GL could not make for himself) He then started on the big task Miss S had for him. GL buttoned his own dress shirt !!!! This is a big deal for us. He had never done this before, I for one had given up hope that he ever would. Along with this thought came the thought that he would never be able to have a good job because he couldn’t even button his own shirt. God has done great things in this young man to do a task formerly much too hard for him. Now I know that just because he came dress himself, it doesn’t mean that he won’t have many trials and troubles before he can someday provide for himself. But it gives my Mama heart hope. With God & hope, we’ll be O.K.
Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
