What is a blessing?

A blessing is something that is good for us, that also teaches us.  I think about the things in my life that I have counted as blessings, or times where I have felt blessed and can attest that they are all good for me, and have simultaneously taught me a lesson.  I’ve grown from my blessings.

Brody has been my biggest blessing.

When we found out about Brody’s cleft lip and palate and the initial shock/ anger wore off I felt so lucky and “blessed” that out of all the things that could go wrong we were only dealing with clefts.  I had no idea of the extent of a blessing he would be to me.


Brody is good for me.

Brody has shown me what it is like to truly love and to be loved unconditionally.  He has sped my life up, but also allowed me to slow down at the same time.  He has shown me that I can care about somebody other than myself, even when I want to be selfish I know I can’t be because of him.  Brody has given me a real purpose.  He has given me reason to stand up for others, and myself.  Brody has given ME strength through HIS perseverance.

Brody has taught me.

Brody has taught me to be a better person.  To look at things outside of the box.  To not judge a book by it’s cover, but by the story inside.  He has taught me to see the good in every bad.

Even on our really bad days, we can still say we've been incredibly blessed.
