Before I picked Lila up from school today I stopped by the grocery store. I picked up fresh fruit and deli meat for sandwiches. As I walked around the grocery store, noticing the ever-rising prices, I started to think about how I was going to walk to the check-out, pay for my groceries and not worry about a thing. Some people can't do that. My brother was laid off from his job this week. My husband was out of town this week and our dishwasher took a dump. Our basement ceiling is severely damaged and so is a lot of the carpet. A friend's husband was in a motorcycle accident this week. It's a miracle that he is alive as his helmet flew off. His recovery time will be lengthy. They have a typical 4 year old and a 2 year old with DS. Her husband can't use his arms at all- she has to help him with everything. My sister's having a rough time with chemo this week. My friend Bruce, who also has cancer, broke his hip and came down with pneumonia.
Next time I feel sorry for myself somebody please give me a reality check.
My daughter can't walk- she will in time.
My daughter aspirates and all of her liquids have to be thickened- she will outgrow this.
My daughter has sleep apnea and has to have her tonsils and adenoids out- thank God for modern medicine.
My daughter has sensory issues and we have lots of homework for this- so thankful for a great OT and for Medicaid that pays for it.
I could go on but you get the picture. We are blessed. I am thankful. I need to discipline myself to focus on the good things in my life.
Count your blessings today~
