On Sunday, I returned from two weeks at the cabin. TWO WEEKS!! Why is that in all caps, you ask? When we bought our cabin nine years ago, I was not independent, which made enjoying the cabin difficult. Therefore, I didn't appreciate being there longer than a week at a time.
In the past, I couldn't get from the cabin to the lake (which was only a few short steps) without the help of Steve. In the past couple of years, I've had a much easier time with everything at the cabin (walking down to the boat, getting into the boat, washing the dishes, taking a shower, making a fire and cleaning up when it's time go home).
These past two weeks, we had a revolving door of family and friends coming to create new memories with us at the cabin. I was able to be a fun hostess by cooking, having the guest cabin all cleaned out, driving guests for sight seeing and shopping, mini golfing,going to a small town parade and fireworks, the list goes on and on.
I am so grateful that I can enjoy our seasonal lake home with my husband. Our main purpose for purchasing our cabin was to create memories with our children, friends and family and I truly believe that this was accomplished this July!
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!
