LOST Item

We LOST something and we were in desperate need to find it. We looked High and we looked Low but we just could not find it!! I was starting to worry that we wouldn't ever be able to find it again. Oh, you would have come over and helped me look for it. Well, that just isn't possible, sorry. The thing is we have been stuck in our home due to the heat and UV levels with sweet Bubba. He has not been doing well. He has been having seizures a LOT. It has been VERY hard on everyone. We went to the movies in hopes of finding our LOST item but NOPE it wasn't there. We have tried everything we could do at home BUT no such luck. So, desperate times call for desperate measures. There was only one last place that we could look. This morning we woke up super early and headed to DISNEY LAND hoping that we would be able to find this LOST item before it got to HOT or the UV was to high. Guess what..... WE FOUND IT!!!! What was it that we have been searching for you ask...... We have been looking for .....



COLLIN'S SMILE



Oh, how I missed that beautiful smile. Collin has been in so much pain and has been trapped in our home. It is so hard to see him that frustrated with being stuck and in pain. So, yesterday being at our breaking point Jason and I felt that we needed to take a risk. We woke up nice and early to get there as soon as Disney Land opened. There was an overcast and it was still cool.... it was perfect! Once we got off on the Disney exit on the freeway and Collin started yelling and laughing Jason and I knew we made the right decision. What he needed was something that no doctor could prescribe. He just needed a good healthy dose of Disney to lift his spirits and make him feel good. We all needed it. I know that I have said it MANY times before but I am so grateful for Disney Land and the magic that lies there. It is truly magical!

Julie,
You do not know me but I feel I know you very well....you see.... my name is Jennifer and I was Michelle's mentor teacher at NL...I am new to blogging, I stumbled to your blog through Karol's blog....what a precious family....I too have a son who has a disability....you will have days that you are down, tired, and just simply need some me time. I promise your son's special spirit and sweet smile will far out weigh the bad days you may have. Collin seems like the neatest kid, and what a cute little sis he has. My son is now 21 and I can't begin to tell you what joys he has brought to me and the people who have come to know Jack! I love your blog, your music and your post....I will definetly be visiting again. Hugs...Jennifer
