Repost- Altered Plans


ALTERED PLANS
By: Author Unknown



I've found that God has altered plans I made first starting out,

And though it's clear that He knows best...there have been times of doubt.

The work I do is not the work I really planned on doing,

And many people in my life weren't always of my choosing.

I know for sure that it is true...God has a plan for me,

The paths He's led me down in life have always been the key...

To lessons learned and growing,that I would not have done,

The heartaches and the happiness,the battles fought and won.

Looking back on where I've been,
I've realized just one thing.
Life isn't something that you plan...it's accepting what it brings.

I'm not sure if anyone has directed you to T21 online community. It was my first online connection and full of wonderful parents. Right now they have a thread going about what is Normal for children with DS. I think it is something you'd really enjoy reading so here is the link in case you didn't already have it :)

I absolutely love your site.

You have a beautiful family. And Ruby, her picture this morning made me smile. What a fitting name for your jewel.

Wishing you a wonderful day ahead.
