So, Sunday, I participated in my first Hydrocephalus walk. It was a great success. There were many people who showed up considering the weather didn't cooperate. I guess I shouldn't complain, it didn't rain when we were actually walking. They had several different activities, face painting, balloon making and there were even clowns there. Here's some pictures of the day. If you would like to get a closer look at any of them, just click on the picture.
My Aunt Jen even came to support me.
This is everyone there that had hydrocephalus. There was a variety of ages, from infant to adult.
My 1 hour massage I won as a door prize and mom better not steal it from me, hehe. There were several door prizes given away and the one that we win is to a massage place that is 2 hours from our home.
I really am not sleeping, my eyes are just closed.
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
