Speech Pathology

Beth had a speech screening at her preschool, and it came back that she needed further evaluation of her receptive and expressive language skills.

And, I began to freak out, to worry, to blame myself. 

It's probably nothing.  In fact, a friend of mine who happens to be a speech pathologist will be doing a free screening of her tomorrow just to put my mind at ease.  She thinks it's probably nothing.

The real problem is that I do this - blame myself if anything is the slight bit wrong with my kids. 

I blame myself, and then, I worry.

Why can't I just trust Jesus!?!?!

He is the one that fearfully and wonderfully made them!  Why do I spend hours and hours worrying about things I have no control over?!

If anyone needs an evaluation, I think I need an evaluation of my faith skills ;-)

I need to stop giving into fear!  F.E.A.R. is...

False
Evidence
Appearing
Real

I like that ;-)

She'll be fine!  This - if there is a this - will not ruin her life!

Anyway, I'm feeling better knowing that Julia is going to screen Beth tomorrow.  I feel like, yet again, God has got this problem already fixed.  He's got this.

He's got the whole world in His hands.... and them too!

  1. Jamie,
    Your beautiful Beth will be just fine and you are a great mama! You love those girls with everything you've got and that's what really matters. I know what you mean though, we really do just blame ourselves for every little thing when it comes to our kids. I think we need to let ourselves off the hook a little and just give it to God. Like you said, "He's got this"! He truly does have the whole world in His hands. I am praying for your beautiful Beth. I know she will do great no matter what the results of the evaluation are. God bless you and those beautiful girls of yours!!!
    Love,
    Mary
