Dear Lord Please give me strength to survive the 5th grade field trip…

Dear Lord,

It’s me Sharon. Sorry it has been so long since my last conversation with you, but as you know I have an autistic child so I don’t always have a lot of time to well… do anything. And as you know there is also Grace who is sometimes even more demanding than Jay, my Aspie. And don’t even get me started on the hubby… OH LORD!

Anyway, I just thought that I would perhaps ring you up because you see Lord, I am going on the 5th grade field trip today. A field trip to the museum… the same one that I went to 3 weeks ago as a chaperon with Grace and her 3rd grade class. It’s not that I am bored Lord about going back AGAIN… or even the fact that I have about a gazillion other things that need to be done especially before my Mother in law arrives on Friday. No Lord, I am happy and grateful to be able to go with my boy on this trip.

But that is it Lord… as you know my Jay has a mind of his own and well when he is done with something… he is done. That ‘s fine when we are alone. I can handle that but I will also have 4 other BOYS in my group . I’m worried Lord because every other trip to the museum has not ended well. He gets tired of walking or just has had enough. The end rest…meltdown. I don’t want my boy to meltdown in front of the other kids Lord.

So Yes Lord, I am ringing you up… even put you on speed dial on my iPhone, and I am asking that you please give me patience and perhaps the answers to know what to do if something comes up. I am trying to stay positive lord. Jay is excited about the trip and that is a really good sign.

Anyway I have to go pack a snack and head to the school to catch the bus. My phone is charged Lord… I hope I don’t need to call you with it…. but just incase it is charged!

Yours truly and humbly,
