Can I please share with you that today.. A YEAR LATER... not only was my son well and at school, like he has been all spring, but he was playing, running, being competitive.. full of life and energy. My son was "just one of the kids". He was sweating, cheering, running, pulling, and laughing. My son was WELL.
Today I sat wearing big sunglasses wiping tears from underneath. So thankful.. beyond words.. that my son is miles away from where he was last year. You see, for me, today was not just a hot track day where we go watch relays and balls being thrown. Today was ANOTHER moment that I treasure, appreciate and will be grateful for. Today was a day that reminds me of the miracle of prayer and healing... a HUGE day of thanksgiving to the Lord for restoring my son to full health. The Lord promised me Good.. He promised me that Clayton would be good. I am so beyond thankful that today, as I sat with mascara all over my hands from wiping my eyes...I was able to see first hand that promise from God in a way I never could have imagined last year. I guess I'm not going to be a normal mom EVER again. I will always be the mom that cries at the events... just thankful for the day... thankful that my son is "just another kid".. with a testimony.
