This has been a very stressful week personally. As I sit here this evening, I am enjoying the moments that I have had with my three beautiful children. I hear the laughter upstairs as they play together and think I am so blessed to have them. Samuel has had another set back today which has brought me to tears, but this evening as I hear him laughing I begin to smile…..
At times, I begin to sink back into the mode of the blame game and guilt of taking the seizure medication while I was pregnant. As I sit in my “self-pity” mode for a bit, I think get over it and make a difference! I guess it helps me to get ideas of the changes that can be made in the area of epilepsy. We can choose to look back or look forward…..so today I had some look back moments and now it is look forward. I mean seriously, do I really need to sit in “self-pity” mode? One of my favorite blogging and epilepsy advocates is Christy Shake. Her sweet Calvin has epilepsy. I love Christy’s honesty and straight forwardness when she blogs! She is such a wonderful example for me to look to as I read her blogs daily! Check out her blog at www.calvinsstory.com
All this to say that I am sitting here this evening and enjoying the moment….. the laughter of three beautiful children. I sure do miss the baby stages….So this evening if you have children sit down and listen to them, read them a story, soak up that baby smell, give them one more kiss…..these times pass so quickly.
