Life is not easy. Especially when you are in a family of invisible illnesses and disabilities. It can be serious, funny and downright hard! But we make it. Just like everyone else. We just do it in a different style.

Birthdays and All Things Good Today

In the midst of every storm is a little light.

Today, is my young son's birthday and I invited several friends over. He never get to see most of them since becoming homebound, so having guests over always puts a smile on his face. He walked by just now and said, "It's not that bad, Mom. It's almost as good as going out." Bless his growing heart!

With the little I scraped together, I bought a huge picture cake from Giant and three Ultimate Meat Pizzas from Walmart. The first pizza was inhaled between Kirby, Kingdom Hearts and Supersmash Brothers Brawl. I got two slices from the second one(I still eat meat, even though most of my regular meals are veggie). Now, there are calls for the cake. I will have to make this quick, so I can get back to lighting candles.

Just to hear the sound of laughter and good innocent young teen ribbing felt good. The house wasn't too cold today and everyone pitched in and cleaned three rooms in half an hour.

Sometimes, good things happen in the midst of it all. Thank goodness for those times. I use them like finger holds, clinging to each meager one as I continue to climb.
