As I drove into town, I texted a very special friend. It went something like this.
Where are you?
I am freaking out.
Come look at your phone.
I can’t do this.
I am going to keep texting until I hear from you.
I am here.
Nothing, nada, no response. My great friend had her phone on silence! Way to be there for me :) I went into the first building, yes, on autopilot. I went through the motions and everyone was incredible. I went to my next building and the teachers loved her. I left her for a moment to talk to my boss and when I came back, Maddox was playing in all the toys in the therapy room just like a therapy session. My heart sank and floated at the same time. I had always dreamed of my little girl coming in to play in the closet full of toys. I did not dream that she would need that closet full of toys. My heart floated because this little girl has so many people that love her.
My great friend made this her facebook status for the day:
Watched a fabulous friend of mine do a very brave and amazing thing today that will set the path for the rest of her days. In awe and totally feeling the respect for my friend,the first step is so hard, but the rest to follow are easier. WHY am I so blessed with such greatness? Sorry I was not there to answer the text! You did it by yourself though didn't you? March 26 at 7:10pm
Thank you, it means a lot to me. Also, thank you to my co-workers who embraced Maddox today.
