..I JUST GOTTA WEAR SHADES!
And? So what if they're Build-a-Bear glasses?
You can make any shades look good if you're as cool as I am!
Oh my word, my poor child...the things we do for a laugh (you should see the "show" we have almost every night when getting him undressed for his bath, he has "legging-hair" and "vest-hair" and "shirt-hair".
Maybe this will help....
Seriously though, this isn't the first time we've put Meg's Build-a-Bear sunglasses on Sam and he doesn't half mind them - altho obviously we don't want to damage his eyes. Although, taking his light-sensitivity issues into consideration, maybe a pair of sunglasses wouldn't be such a bad idea.
So, anyhoo, Sam is slowly getting over his viral infection (slowly being the operative word). He sounds just like an old smoker in the morning as it takes a good hour or two for him to cough up all the gunk that is blocking his airways (I know - sorry for the graphics). But at least he was healthy enough for him and I to make it back to church on Sunday ("church" meaning that Chris and kids sit in the church/childrens' church respectively, and Sam and I pace out the foyer, the kitchen, the bathrooms (desperate times folks) and inevitably land up in an empty, darkened classroom with me perched on a teeny-weeny kiddie's chair (being a shorty has some advantages) where, two minutes before the end of the service, Sam eventually falls asleep. Yah! Maybe I should arrive forty-five minutes early so I can "con" him into believing that the service has actually started which then in turn makes him think he's fallen asleep at the end of the service, instead of the beginning. Mmmmm, worth some thought...not sure how the congregation will feel about not putting the lights on through the service and the worshipping and sermon being done in a whisper. Maybe I'm expecting too much...Hee Hee!
Seriously though, it was truly wonderful to be there on Sunday morning, Sam and I had missed a good couple of services and we have such awesome fellowship at our church - knowing such a caring, thoughtful and compassionate community has been an invaluable blessing for us.
With Sam being ill, we have also missed quite a few neuro-therapy sessions so tomorrow we are back into the swing of things just with a new therapist for this one time as Cathy, Sam's usual therapist, is not at the practice tomorrow....here's hoping all goes well (for Heidi's sake, not Sam's - his reaction to therapy takes some getting used to).
So, in keeping within the subject of "bright futures", something for the heart :-)
"One of the blessings of knowing God is that your life journey doesn't need to be like a map-challenged journey. A heart that seeks God's direction will be rewarded with guidance from Him because God DOES have a plan for each of us."
"The more we count the blessings we have, the less we crave the luxuries we haven't."
