Sometimes, I think how different life would have been for my sister, Abbie, if she had not been born with mentally-challenged. Sometimes, I think how different life would have been for my family and myself if she did not face the hurdles that she has had to face.
Abbie is the toughest person I know. She is my hero. She is not an unsung hero, because I will make sure that her song will be heard. If my singing hurts the ears of others, I will still sing “Abbie’s Song.”
Another song I will sing is the song of my Savior, Jesus Christ. He saved my soul from Hell. He has performed so many miracles in my life that I cannot even count them. I place Him above all people, including Abbie and the rest of my family, in my life.
Sometimes, I feel like I don’t have a purpose in this life. Sometimes, I have even wondered what my worth is in this world. All I have to do, though, is look through the Bible and see the words of Christ and look at Abbie’s life and know what I am here for.
I hope and pray that everyone has someone in their family or a friend that they can look at and see Christ so clearly.
