I've had a couple people suggest that I start a blog so friends and family can be a part of all my new experiences. I have to be honest; I had absolutely no idea what a blog was, not to mention how I would set one up. I was able to figure it out, so here I am. I should also add, that I am not a professional writer and my English teachers from school would probably cringe reading this.
Like an excited toddler, I will share all the things that I too can do all by myself. At the age of 34, I am finally a big girl! Actually, there are many times in the week that I feel that I am trying something new that most set out to do shortly after graduating from high school.
I find much joy in doing things that many people dread doing. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I think these things are fun. I find myself with tears of joy, because they are things that I never imagined I could ever do. In fact, I would see others do them and watch in amusement wondering "How do they do it?" Anyway, here's a short list of things that I can do now:
put clean sheets on the bed (even on a bunk bed)
drive my daughters to all of their activities in the evenings
I really hope that this Blog helps others see that we really need to be thankful for the little things in life. I know I am.
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!
