I have been working a lot. I mean a lot, as when I am home I have been writing many progress notes and such. There has been no time yet again to visit you. As much as I would like to that is just the way it is right now. So bear with me a while longer as I get things in order for work, at home and well in life. As I work on my computer I have these two visiting me in my office. They jump up on my table and lay there while I type away.
Of course I have visitors of the human kind as well. No wonder I don't get much accomplished!
Last Sunday I got a last minute invite to my friend Georgette's house. Her friend, Mr. Mike of elevator fame was there for a visit. He brought so many wonderful elevator related items for Little Buddy, I have to say I was just so touched. A hat, cell phone bits and bobs, a real Danger Elevator Closed sign, a work-persons vest, a rules and regulation book for elevators, a wheel that holds an elevator cable, and these amazing elevator buttons. The bottom one is for Parking Level one and the big one can be plugged in and it shows different types of elevator buttons. These light up and well you can only imagine how happy my little elevator man was. We are going to hang this up and when he wants to play elevator he will be working on standing balance, no crutches or walker allowed. See, I am always making things therapeutic if I can. Mr. Mike was as delighted as Little Buddy if that is even possible. How fun to have a little one so interested in what you do. It is so nice to see how wonderful people can be out in this mad crazy world.
As soon as we got home Little B wrote a thank you note to Mr Mike. I am guessing Little Buddy is the larger person in this drawing. I hope Mr Mike understands what an incredibly special thing he did for this little boy of mine.
Mr 21 blew into town with his girlfriend on Monday just in time to become Mr. 22. We had a birthday dinner out with him to celebrate on Tuesday evening. We celebrated both of their birthdays as she will be 21 in the beginning of June. These two have been together since they were 14 and 15. They still adore each other and are so wonderfully supportive of each other.
Mother's Day is quickly approaching. This envelope came home in Little Buddy's backpack yesterday. And as it says I will not open it until Sunday! That face is a little scary, no? Although he does have a smile.
This lovely flower came home with Little Buddy when he went to physical therapy this week. Isn't it cute?
Actually it is so cute I thought Little Buddy could wish you all a Happy Mother's Day with it. Our gift to you for being the wonderful, caring and supportive women you are to us and to all those around you. You know I feel funny about Mother's Day. I much prefer Women's Day, because as women we have to collectively support so many around us, it has nothing to do with being a mother, it has everything to do with being a woman. So here is to you! Thank you for all you do to make your families, friends and community a better place. And that includes this space right here. You are the best!
