My brother had a hiccup, but he’s picking himself up from it. He’s not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. HE made an appointment with his favorite therapist, HE asked for a meeting of the J-preservation team, and he’s trying to reassess and take it easy. He’s still working hard to try and gain lost ground. But seeing him call in his own appointment, ask for help, and listen to others more, gave me a lot of hope.
It’s been a rough week, and just due to some unavoidable stressors, I have a feeling this will not be our only hiccup this month. Finals, Dad’s birthday, our brother John getting out of hospital, more hours at work and our cousin’s wedding, oh and I’m going to go to my graduation after all, these are things we can’t avoid or stop from happening.
Last night he tried a new place with me. It was so busy and loud and crowded, and I knew it wouldn’t be a good situation. Instead of just getting rattled and going home, he decided to ask for the meal to go. We had a picnic and finally had a chance to sit down, talk, and just hang out and leave the SZ on a shelf for a while.
Instead of venting off what has been hard this week, I was hoping others would join me in enjoying what went right. What has been going well out there?
