See What You’re Missing?
When was the last time you stopped and took a look at what was going on around you? I mean we are just so busy running around that I think we forget to stop and appreciate what is right in front of us. It’s God’s way of saying, see I made this for you, look!
My 13 year old son, who has Asperger’s, has a special gift. It has taken me many years before I really understood why God would give me a son with a so called “disability”. His gift, is he is always aware of all the beautiful things around us. He seems to see what we seem to miss or take for granted. Whether it’s a rock that looks cool, a cloud in shape of something or a beautiful sunrise or sunset. I can be folding laundry while dinner is on the stove and I will hear him from across the house say, “Mom, come quick, you have to see the sunset”! I have to be honest, there was a time I would say John not now I’m busy, but then something happened. I had a “light bulb” moment and realized that I was missing out on the most simplest things but ones that really matter.
Now that I’m aware, I thank God for John’s gift. He’s my little reminder saying, “See What you’re missing”?
