This year, for Mother’s Day, I spent the day with MY kids, Shawn and his mom….we headed over to the UW boat house and rented canoes for the afternoon. I think it may have been the BEST Mother’s Day so far. The day was filled with laughs and smiles. But even more amazing was that it was a GREAT leg day. The pain was manageable, my legs weren’t wonky, and truthfully I think that there were moments in the day that I wasn’t thinking about the disease. That has got to be one of the best gifts EVER!!!
…Just a day, (hell a few hours) can be appreciated, because it is always there; lurking, waiting to fuck with you and your day and your plans. Not so much YOUR decision, but the disease’s, and having to learn to accept that is difficult.
Just wanted to share a few of the pics…..
Lorrie looked a bit apprehensive:) Sam, bored:)
Just what the doctor ordered – happiness!
