On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…….eleven parents praying………..
Since my son Darren’s spinal cord injury, I have met countless parents, all distraught over the catastrophic injuries that have now changed their lives. I met people who are very religious and turn to their Faith for understanding. I have met those who claim not to believe in God, because if there was a God, how could He let this happen? And then there are so many caught in the middle, not knowing what to believe, who to believe in, and why this has happened.
I do not intend to use this blog to purport any religious beliefs, or even state my own personal intentions. In my experience, though, I have seen many parents praying for their sons and daughters, praying for themselves, and praying for those who can help their children, whether related to medical or daily needs.
During this Christmas season, along with all the commercial accompaniments, I hope you find that prayer can help you, console you, calm you and strengthen you. Let whatever Faith you hold dear to your heart be the backbone of your existence. Stay strong, not only for yourself, but for those around you who need you and rely on you. May your Faith be a guiding light this holiday season.
With love and faith, Cynthia
