How do you fine inspiration when things seem overwhelming and few people seem to care?

I feel this way as my sons last year in great school approaches.

For me, with my faith, I spend time alone with who I know to be God. I'm left, after our visits, with peace and strength --- I just don't do those visits often enough.

But I do know what its like to be already missing and grieving your child growing up --- that's what I've been dealing with since my daughter took flight after finishing her grade 12. I was grieving a good part of the year, at times.

I don't know how old your son is or if he'll be in high school next or what. -?- By grade school do you mean he's finished grade 7 or 8? (Some places in Canada have middle school --- grades 7, 8 & 9 --- and other schools absorb those grades in grade school and in high school.)

It can be a tough thing, seeing our kids grow up before our eyes. I don't know how severely autistic your son is, but I know from what you've shared here that you're a very good Mother, Phil. And that it is often stressful for you. I wish I could know how to encourage you, sorry I'm at such a loss in this...

May your Tuesday evening be a great one!!

That's a tough one Philosopher... it just seems to be there when we need it. You've faced everything to this point, and you'll meet the new challenges as well. I think it's the uncertainty that makes us worry, but as time passes, the unknowns become knowns and we adapt to succeed.

I hope so Kraven but I always hope someone knows something I do not.
