Sleep is clearly a necessity but one I seem to not get often. Stress and life keep the wheels turning. Thankfully Owen has been sleeping a little better again and I pray that the sickness is leaving him. He was able to go to his church program last night and that makes him so happy. Earlier in the day, he went on a field trip with school. I see progress with Owen but there are still moments that I try to figure out what to do and how to keep the progress moving forward. He has clear lines of where people should be and when someone is in a different location it can be hard for him to process. I wanted to go with him on his field trip but I felt like he would have more fun without me. Depending on where we go he is more focused on me than the event. Other times he is completely fine with me being there. This also has to do with the fact of who else is with us. If I met Owen at the location he would think that I was picking him up and we should go home. This is changing and I am able to go more places with him but it’s still an emotional journey for me. And the rules of today will change for tomorrow unless they don’t. He’s asking to go more places, he’s doing more things, and our world is changing every day. Never give up. Believe in miracles, I look at mine every day. And know that you can accomplish great things if you put your mind to it. Smiles to all and donut daze!
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.
