Graduating and Yesterday's Milestone

In the midst of the hustle, I sit down today to appreciate milestones. My niece Emma is graduating high school this week and I am, oh so very, proud of her. And of my big sister Kara, who has been working so hard, for so long, to make a great life for her and her girls. You guys rock. But wait, wasn't Emma just a two year old, riding next to me in the Mocko Mobile falling in love with horses out the car window?  Sometimes life moves so fast that you forget how many important steps it took to...

I've been trying so hard to be conscious that it led me right to being conscious of other things... So let's get real.  If you didn't know already, I am a single 29 yr old mother of an 11 yr old boy who has cerebral palsy, but has extra special needs right now. He is 13 weeks post op from a major surgery. He is mostly in a wheelchair, but uses a walker some. With his limited physical capacities (very limited), we are homeschooling (and by "we" I mean my mother, while I rock the rehab drill sergeant routine) Oh,...
