Thanksgiving was good. Drake ate his favorite foods....chicken nuggets and shrimp, while the rest of us ate the usual turkey, dressing, and such. I decided a long time ago to stop worrying about what Drake eats and his limited palate. He eats five or six different foods well. Food is the least of my worries right now. While we were eating with my Mother-in-law and other family, Drake found an Easter basket and some eggs. He quietly took the basket, sat down on the floor, and played with the Easter eggs. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving Easter.
Of course at one point during the day we all needed a nap. Some of us were not quite ready to conquer the rest of the day....
The lack of therapy last week is really beginning to bring out a little monster. He gets more hyper, stimmy, and demanding with each passing day. I'm so thankful things are back to a regular schedule. I may hug his therapist when I see her. Thankfully Drake is not rigid about routines or a schedule, but he does better when things are consistent.
Christmas is approaching at the speed of light. My favorite holiday. Not only is it the birth of my Savior, but it seems to be a time when people are more tolerant of one another. We tend to smile a little more and just be nice. Wouldn't it be lovely if we could keep the Christmas spirit all year long?
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Eph. 4:32
