I can’t do it anymore…

“I can’t do it anymore.” I’ve said this more times this last month that I’ve lost count.

I’ve said it in my head. I’ve said it to my husband Adam, and to friends.

I’ve even said it out loud sitting next to the most beautiful little innocent soul.

I’m not perfect. I am no where near it.

I say and feel things I shouldn’t.

I get angry. I yell. I cry. I get frustrated. And at times I think others have it better, or easier.

I crumble every single day.

But, I also pick myself back up every single day.

I tell myself the fight is worth it. He’s worth it.

Each day I get a little better at choosing my words, and remembering that he hears them. All of them.

I remember that this isn’t his fault. That choosing happiness over despair is what will keep you going.

And that raising little humans regardless of special needs, is the hardest job on the planet.

So, for how many times you’ve thought you couldn’t do it, remember how many times you actually did. Because, you can.
