I remember going to the grocery store and as we were checking out the clerk said to me can he have stickers. I looked at him and I said he doesn’t understand what stickers are. I got back to my car and I bawled. I thought why didn’t I just say yes or even no thank you but no I said he doesn’t understand stickers. Sometimes it is the little things that trip you up on this journey but just keep moving forward. Last night I found a sheet of stickers and I handed them to Owen. He looked and looked at them. Then I peeled one off. He looked at it and I stuck it on his finger. He signed “more” so I gave him another one. Then “more” again. He was so excited about the stickers. I look back on that day, that only now seems like a distant memory and I’m thankful that he was now excited about stickers. Every day seems to bring new moments in time that I’m thankful for.
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
