This time change is for the birds and I heard them bright and early when Owen woke up, I think we woke the birds. He was sounding more nasally, but there was no fever. I debated whether I should send him to school, but he kept asking about the bus and his teacher. He was full of energy this morning and singing up a storm. As the day wore on I got a call from his teacher saying Owen had a slight fever and she knew he wasn’t feeling well because he wasn’t doing his work. As sad as I was that he was feeling worse, there is such a joy in knowing my boy loves school and doing his work. Every year around this same time he gets sick. We’re home now and he still has a fever but he’s eating and drinking. I’m praying that it moves out of his system quickly. On our way home he still gave me directions as we turned. If he knows where we are heading he will tell me what he thinks are the correct directions. “I’m gonna go straight”, he will yell or interchange it with left and right. When we go someplace he is familiar with he will say, “back way or dis way”, pulling me one direction and then the other. It feels like life in those few seconds, always being pulled in different directions. Through blessings I’m learning a lot about myself and that we are not alone. Everybody’s got something. With determination and a positive attitude, we can accomplish great things. And there is always someone to give you the support you need. 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.
