My greatest blessings all in one picture. Last week we had the pleasure of taking the boys to Daystar Christmas. With over a millon lights throughout their campus it’s the perfect FREE family event. My boys loved running through the lighted tunnel, seeing the life size nativity scene, and walking through the interactive displays. Since the boys have sensory issues, a lot of family Christmas events are simply just not fun for them. Having somewhere that I can feel safe having them run around and they can have the time of their life truly meant the world to my family. We don’t get to do tradional family outings often, so this was extra special for us. I tear up just thinking about how happy we all were. We even brought them back for a second time this week because it was such a fun experience for us. If you’re in town and looking for a family friendly free event, I highly recommend going to Daystar with your loved ones.
Over this past week I realized how much my crippling depression and anxiety had a hold on my and my family’s happiness. I wasn’t able to see my blessings clearly— and every part of life felt so overwhelming. For so many years I was in this fog, and to be out of it feels like I can breathe for the first time in my life. While at Daystar, I saw a sign that read “You’re not alone”. Tears filled my eyes because I know ‘while Christmas is considered to be a season of great joy, for some it’s a time of deep sorrow. Many often feel forgotten and alone. Others are struggling with the loss of a loved one and enduring unimaginable pain and grief during the holidays.” PLEASE know that you are NOT alone. If you ever need to talk that I am here, and I’ve been there. If you need extra support and encouragement you can reach out: USA & Canada: 1-800-329-0029.
