Recently, my children and I were eating dinner (during a visit) when my son DJ told me about a movie he recently watched.
DJ said: “Even though you lost in Court, you’re still a winner, Mom. I saw this movie and this guy was building robots for a race, and he built this really cool robot but it lost the race. The judges said someone else was the winner. But the people in the crowd liked the robot and said he should have won. So those 3 judges didn’t pick the right winner…the robot was the winner. And that’s kinda how it is for you too.”
It took all my strength not to cry. When I got in my car, alone and without my kids, the impact of what he said hit me…and I thanked God for giving my son this affirmation. I believe and trust that one day our prayers will be answered and my family will be reunited.
