Today marks the 5th anniversary of Olivia’s diagnosis. While the anniversary has turned into a day of celebrations instead of tears, it’s still been a week of emotions for me.
I’m SO thankful that she’s doing well. I’m thankful for every giggle and every moment she acts like a drama queen. I’m thankful for her cuddles, snuggles and kisses. I’m thankful for all the good news we get when going to her preschool “parent / teacher conferences”. I’m even thankful for the many many moments where she and Maddie are fighting.
When the bad memories creep in, I remind myself of all the good. All the moments that most people take for granted we instead catch our breath. When I ask her to stop jumping in the kitchen – there’s a moment where I stop and am thankful that she’s able to jump.
Happy Anniversary Miss O. May you celebrate another 95 of these!!!
