Sometimes one of the hardest things for me is to try new things with Owen. It can be way out of our comfort zone but I know we have to keep trying. In the last couple of months, we have been going to Home Depot for their building projects for kids and he has done great. The experience alone is part of the journey. We haven’t completed a project there, we really haven’t completed the projects at all, but we’ve successfully gone through the motions. We will be going again. I have to remember, like all of us, we will like some things and other things we won’t want to try again. The journey isn’t always about how fast we cross the finish line but what we’ve done to get there. I tell Owen that we have to prepare ourselves for greatness and that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to. Believe in yourself and the rest will follow. I have to remind myself of this too. It’s a hard lesson for me to remember. I’m harder on myself than anyone else ever will be. We got more sleep last night and for this I’m thankful. Owen woke up at four again but luckily after a bathroom break, we went back to sleep. That gets a big yipeedoodlecakes from me. He still has his cough but I can see he’s starting to feel better. I’m trying to teach him to cover his mouth when he coughs. This is a very difficult concept for him. He doesn’t understand personal space at all so not coughing in someone’s face is something he has to learn as well. One day at a time, together through a journey with love and learning. The journey of life is what we make it be inspired and go after your dreams. 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.
