Sick with the croup is not an ideal way to spend your third birthday. So sick, Isaac slept most of his birthday, but he woke up in plenty of time to redecorate his birthday cake.


This is Mommy's version,...everything just so.


This is Isaac's version,....PERFECTION achieved.

Lots of parallels to be found with Isaac's Apraxia diagnosis, husband and I, as older parents were realistically prepared for our third child to have special needs, but when Isaac was born without any obvious challenges, aside from his severe jaundice, we thought we had dodged that issue,...with I admit, a huge sigh of relief,...only to face developmental delays for our beautiful boy,...down the road.

Redirected dreams,...redecorated cake,...but the LORD doesn't make mistakes,...and honestly my "just-so" version of Isaac's birthday cake is kinda bland and boring,...compared to the perfect creativity Isaac achieved with his happily placed decorations.

Believe me, Isaac's giggles and smiles and complete satisfaction when his redecorating task was finished were utterly heart melting.

And you know what?

The cake tasted just as good, was sound and sweet,...and completely unique.

Like our Isaac.

Unknowns for our future,...YES,...but Isaac will be Isaac,...just as the LORD created him to be,...and he is and will continue to be a blessing,...creative,...and utterly unique with his personality already at three years old achieving: PERFECTION.

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
