A couple days ago, the girls and I were driving to go see my mom. I made the comment that we haven't seen her in awhile. Sharon immediately replied, "Well, I guess that's because you don't need her help anymore."
I find it amazing that at the age of seven, Sharon understands my transformation better than some adults who have known me for years. I often think that she doesn't remember that Mommy used to need help running all of her errands and completing her household chores. I guess that's not the case at all.
Even though Sharon was only six when began learning how to do things independently, I can't help but think that that she won't ever take the little things in life for granted. I think that there is a lot that we can learn from her attitude and outlook.
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!
