It is mind blowing that a day like today can be so sweet. God would not have it… He would not allow this day to just be sad, period! He made sure this day would not happen without the good.
We had a court hearing for our boy today that had much potential for pain. And there was pain. So we sat with our boy telling him it should not be like this. As much as we love him, and love loving him, it should not have been. So we stood still and we felt the pain. We mourned together, the 3 of us, at the table, crying tears. That is not the end of the story though… because of today’s happening in court, we are now able to call him ours very soon. We can adopt our boy. And so there were bittersweet tears. Bitterness that will turn into praise, at some point, when he is ready.
So our boy did not go back to school that day. Instead we went to Chick Fil A for some comfort food to address the sadness. And then we went to Starbucks for a Celebration drink to address the goodness.
How beautiful a day can be, even if pain was mixed into it.
