Day 281 | JUNE 18, 2022
Good evening, Friends, today is day 281 of our new and amazing life!
Today was truly a good day!
Well, I did start my day a little later than usual 🙂, I didn’t wake up until 9am! I guess my body just needed the rest after an intense day in the heat.
When I made my way downstairs, everyone seemed well and happy, and Charlie was waiting for me for breakfast, and I am so glad that she was. I made us eggs, bacon, toast and basic breakfast and it was so good!
As we started to enjoy our breakfast and each other’s company, Charlie spilled her iced coffee and it went all over her and her food, poor thing.
Here is a not so nice fact about me, in my previous life, an accident like that was a trigger for an outburst of anger and frustration, and I am very embarrassed to admit but that was me.
Today was different, when the coffee spilled, I grabbed napkins and without saying a word, I cleaned up Charlie’s lap, wheelchair seat, tire, and the table.
I didn’t feel upset, anger, nothing, and I just focused on how did this made Charlie feel? I wondered if she was mad or frustrated, so looking from the perspective of the other person was what I needed to feel compassion and not anger.
Charlie remained calm and also was not upset, she just asked for a new coffee and neither of us let this incident affect our mood in any negative way and for that I am so grateful.
After breakfast, we took the boys outside and one of our neighbors were having a Lemonade stand and London really wanted a Lemonade, we made our way down just few houses from our house, and I am glad that we did, the boys and we had such a great time talking with our neighbors, it was really good to catch up with few of them, we are beyond blessed to live in a incredible neighborhood, there is a true sense of community and we feel so much love and support towards our family! Thank you, Cascadia neighbors!
We made our way home after some time there and we stayed outside playing until 8pm, it was truly a fun day and the weather was very pleasant for Charlie. She really enjoyed being outside and seeing the boys having so much fun and playing with the neighborhood kids.
Today my bedtime was late, and that is ok because days like this are what creates memories and friendships. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to be together as a family! God’s miracle in preserving Charlie’s Life is something to be celebrated, our family is so grateful.
Yes, we had a late dinner before the boys went to bed 🙂
Tomorrow is Father’s Day; I wish all dad’s a fun and blessed day with the family!
Thank you for your continued support of our Book, and thank you for your prayers.
Have a Good Night!
