My life has changed so much in the last year...

A year ago today I would probably have been watching TV for 2-3 hours each night.  Now we go many nights not turning on the TV until we go to bed and I am usually reading and he falls asleep in less than 30 minutes.  It is really refreshing.

Our evenings are busy with spelling words, playing games, reading alone or together, and preparing for the next day.  Then there are the days with special activities like gymnastics, special olympics, speech thereapy, and going to the gym. 

Then some weekends we have a lot planned like this weekend with Izza getting to go up in a private plane with Challenge Air Dallas.  Then we will all don our costumes, get our can goods for donation and entry to the Bedford Halloween event.  Sunday is family day at church and we will all be wearing our costumes.  A fun, busy weekend ahead.

I love my quiet weekends, and I believe Izza and Kerry do also, but it is nice to have these things to do as a family also.

I love all of the changes in my life and I would not go back for anything.  It is just amazing to me to take that look back and see how different things are for us now.  I knew things would change, but I guess until they happened I did not know how they would look or how they would feel.  I am here to say the picture is beautiful and the feeling is contentment.

Namaste my friends.
