My how time flies

Well here it is November 17 & my baby boy will be 6 on December 16th. I cannot believe how fast time has just flown by. He is loving school, making lots of friends there, maturing into a wonderful young man. I am so blessed to have this precious little boy in my life.

Daron's health is kind of getting better. The doctor says his strength is slowly returning, but his balance is still off some. We finally got our new van, his motorized scooter, manual wheelchair (all thanks to the VA). We are hoping that things will get better as time goes by. I am thankful that he is doing better & blessed to have him in my life.

I recently went to Georgia to see my baby brother Jon graduate from boot camp at Ft Benning. My entire family is so very proud of him & thankful that he is home safe.

Struggles

I have been struggling to.... ....get out of bed in the morning. ....be a good mom. ....take care of my house. ....take care of myself. ...
