My favorite day of the year!

by Living with RSD: what comes next?

I sent my kids off to school this morning. One in fourth grade and the older in 7th. It was a great morning for them and a wonderful day for me. It was wonderful to be here to send them off to school and enjoy those moments with them. We got the obligatory first day pictures and some great smiles.

But the great thing for me was that I got to braid my daughters hair. This might seem insignificant to many of you. To me, this was major. There have been many years that I couldn’t even brush her hair. This year, I did a small braid with a flower accessory. She felt special and I felt wonderful. I did it!

My hands are killing me, but it’s worth it to see her smile.

Today, they’ll remember new friends, new bags, and a brand new year. I’m going to hold onto that perfect braid and a beautiful smile!
