It's summer vacation. So for me, that means busy, busy, busy! In fact, I'm exhausted! I've put nearly 200 miles on my car in three days and I haven't even left the county! At one point yesterday, I was feeling...crabby. I was frustrated that my house was a mess and I was too busy running kids from one end of town to the other and then it hit me...Jean, appreciate the "little things in life."
I had to share this because even I find myself taking things for granted. Five years ago, I couldn't leave my house without the help of an adult. Now, here I am taking Winona to math class, basketball camp and friend's houses. Plus, Sharon, John and I have run so many errands (groceries, Target, Costco, oil change, etc).
I am so tired, yet I'm so happy that I can still function! Life is a gift and it is so important to take time to appreciate ALL OF IT!!!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
