I comforted myself by thinking, "Someday he will be able to comfort, feed, dress, and wipe himself...I also prayed and cried...a lot!! And believe it or not, that day came, went, and progressed into not only helping himself but the rest of the family too!! It happens, it does, we are living proof!
It's kind of like compound interest. You invest your time, your effort, and yourself... of course completely dependant upon God, right?? You receive multiple blessings in the form of children and when they are of age(usually between 7-8) they help more than what is required for their sustenance. It's totally true!
These exquisite creatures exist almost purely on love. No, they aren't perfect and they do things to remind you of this. But we need those reminders or we have lost the whole humility package that's built into the divine parental covenant.
"We will run and not grow weary, for our God will be our strength, and we will fly like the eagle, we will rise again."
