It not just a cane........it's a lightsaber too!

My disability brings about all kinds of fun for my Grandsons.   The adaptive devices that I depend on for mobility and balance, begin to do double duty.  To a child, my home looks like an amusement park.   My Grandsons have fun playing with my cane and my lift chair.  Many times I will look for my cane, but lo and behold, it has been snatched and is being used to fight off stormtroopers.  

My chairlift, in their eyes, has become a great way to escape from pirates or alligators. I love that they look at my adaptive equipment with a sense of fun and wonderment.  The pure simplicity of a child is pure joy!

Does your home become a play land, too?

Do Overs!

If you had the chance what would you change about your day?  What would you"do over"?

 

Many people keep a journal of the things they are thankful for in their lives.  But I'm going to journal in a different way.  I'm writing a, "Do Over Journal !"

Each night before bed I'm going to think about my day and journal what I would do over if I could. Maybe I would show more patience to the grocery clerk, pray more, or even give more hugs and kisses to the ones I love.  Since my disability is a huge part of my life, some of my do overs would be specific to that.  (Ex: I shouldn't have written a nasty note to the monster truck owner parked in a handicapped parking spot.)

My,"Do Over Journal," hopefully will serve a purpose.  By re-examining my daily behavior, I will make lasting change.  Well, I can always hope!

What would you do over?

Until next time.png
