Today was a quiet day – a day that we felt the normalcy of a routine. Whitney did take another step toward independence by spending her first night alone. Carly was not able to spend the night and I offered but Whitney said she would be just fine and she was.
Whitney had her morning therapies and had lunch with Newell and me. She has her dad wrapped around her little finger. When she mentioned that she wanted something different for lunch, he ran out and got it for her. She then had her afternoon therapies while Newell and I had meetings.
We all had a short rest as we waited for Carly to come back from her day of interning. Carly has had a few busy days so dinner was fun time of catching up. We talked about home and missing “Alpenfest” back in Gaylord and how quickly each day goes by. We are thankful for these “normal” days… a chance to regroup. A chance to regroup and at the end of the day say “This is the day the Lord has made – let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
With love – Whitney’s mom
