I Found Peace When I Finally Did This…

When MJ was first diagnosed I used to compare him to other children all of the time! It was almost as though I couldn’t help it! Eventually it made me incredibly depressed and through prayer I finally realized that it was getting me nowhere.   I’m so grateful that I learned to never compare, but to celebrate any and every accomplishment/ progress made.  It has made a world of difference in my life!

  2. I’ve been there too Nicky B when Isaiah was very young. I recall taking him to a kids Hume and all mommy’s sat on the floor to sing songs about identifying body parts. Of course there is always a hand clap! All the babies were joining in and tears just dwelled up in my eyes! First bother me now! At 4 just Sunday he was in court both arm raised and clapping! Tears swelled up again but for very different reasons this time. I love my baby just as God made him☺️

  3. This is so very true; I love this! I have done the same thing and the only thing I gained was a lot of sadness. Prayer and looking at every little and big accomplishment is what helped me as well.

  4. I think all moms do this naturally but it’s a different kind of pain and longing in your case. I am very very happy though that we are now in full celebration mode 24/7 – because comparing is unnecessarily stressful!
