I feel like I need to make an addendum to the last blog. If you haven't read my post from Tuesday, I wrote "My primary role for the past 3 ¾ years has been to love, nurture, protect, and care for him (Noah) to the best of my ability. With that taken away, I will enter a completely new season, my roles will shift (with no other children, I will obviously no longer be a mother) and I will face something completely different and that’s frightening." Most comments I've received have reassured me that I will always be a mother, and I do agree with that. But what I was referring to in my statement was my "role" as a mother. With no other children in our family, that role would change to something else. I wouldn't have anyone to "mother" anymore, and that would be an extremely difficult change for me. I decided I should expand on that comment a little more in hopes it will be interpreted the way I intended it. Thanks for all the encouragement you all have given me since the last post; I really didn't expect all the responses I received and I'm very humbled that God would use my writing to encourage others or remind them of the importance of trusting Him.
We have a meeting with Noah's surgeon on Monday afternoon, so I will update again once John and I decided what we are doing with that situation. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see" (Hebrews 11:1).
