Writing is a way to put your thoughts into words. Writing can be used as a coping mechanism of life’s trials and tribulations.
In 1988 I was given a beautiful 3 lb. baby girl who when she entered this world was not breathing. The doctors immediately hooked up to oxygen and IV’s and she stayed that way for 3 months. I had to bring her home on oxygen and a ventilator, but I also was told that in order for me to keep her alive I would have to take different size tubings and place them through her nose down into her esophagus to keep it dilated so she would continue to breathe. I had to do that for one year. She was sent home with a g-tube because she could not be fed by mouth, and it would leak stomach acid and burn her skin. I made the doctors remove it and I used a syringe to feed her with to teach my daughter how to suck since she didn’t know how because of being intubated so long. Jocelyn ended up having 125 surgeries and she survived, but there were times where she stopped breathing. This was a hard pill to swallow especially since that was my first child. What did I do so wrong I asked the Lord? I know that I wasn’t as bad as some people? And the Lord answered saying “MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT”
I asked God to remove the thorn, but instead he gave me a vision. Through that suffering I wrote a book called “Can I Just Have a Little Bit?” All I wanted was a little peace, a little grace and mercy. What do you want?
There are others out there just like me who have so much pain and don’t know what to do with it. Kim Wuertz did the same thing I did, but her pain in to writing. When you do that it takes your focus off your issues and begin to find solutions to your problems.
