Lizzy had a real good couple of days and she is more in touch with her surroundings. She has been very affectionate and more verbal. The rough time is over for now, we just have to watch and wait to see when she needs her next dose of Cina.
Since my last post I have been reflecting on how I can be better at being patient with Lizzy’s autism recovery. After many prayers and complete surrender I am at peace again. My beautiful sister Lisa shared with me the passage listed below. How true it is! One has to lean on Him in order to acheive peace, understanding and healing. I only hope that I will continue to do this each day without hesitation.
5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
All good things come to those who wait. My mom (Lizzy’s Grandma) has been single for the past forty two years. After my mom and dad’s divorce mom dedicated all of her time to raising myself and my two sisters. She did not date she just was busy working hard for the money to raise us three girls. She recently met a very wonderful man and they have fallen in love with each other. All good things come to those who wait, it is just a matter of time. I am so happy for her. She is a completely new woman. God is good. My cousin sent us a Jib Jab card with my mom and her boyfriends picture. It was so adorable. Lizzy watched it with me today and at the end she blew a kiss to the computer display. It was so sweet! She loves her grandma so. Mom has been very concerned about Lizzy during this time and she prays for Lizzy’s recovery daily. I am so glad that mom has someone special to share her thoughts and life with. Love is a very powerful thing.
Our love for Lizzy is what keeps us going to recover her and do whatever it takes to make her better. Love conquers all. Whether is comes now or later it can move mountains. God’s love for us is more powerful than we can even imagine. I know that His love for us and Lizzy will lead us on the right path to recovery for all of us. We will all be healed in accordance to His plan, it is just a matter of time.
I close this entry with a grateful heart and pray that I will continue to seek God’s will and glory. Through Him all thingss are possible. Especially recovery!
Sweet dreams and hope for another day of recovery.
