So, in an attempt to push myself a little further and to give me a sense of success, I put together a before and after picture. I've looked at these pictures a hundred times, but until I put them side by side I don't think I really had any idea of a: how big I'd actually gotten and b: how well I'm really doing! So..I'm going to share it with you guys! Here ya go!
The picture on the left was taken at the DMA in October. That kiddo, ok, so he's a young man who happens to be taller than me, is my sweet little Christopher who I started babysitting when he was 2. We continued working together for years in therapy and babysitting and though he probably doesn't know it, Christopher (and his family) played an important role in my life...in many special moments in my life! One of the sweetest moments was the day after I was diagnosed with my brain cyst I was babysitting...and when I wen to tuck Christopher into bed he started saying the Lord's Prayer. I knew then that I was going to be ok! Thanks Christopher! Ok, enough of that! Anyway...the picture on the right was taken a couple of weeks ago. You've seen this picture...I'm excited to see this picture! I needed to see this picture...and I needed to see it compared to the other picture! I needed to know that thus far, it's all been worth it. The apple and peanut butter for dinner and boiled egg for lunch...it's all worth it! The work is paying off and I continue to have my eye on the prize!!!
