This morning I had a wonderful reminder that it’s not suppose to be about me but them! Alison (the butterfly) and Misty that is. Misty (my wife) loves holidays and went to a lot of trouble to get ready for Halloween today and I did my volunteer hours to help at the Canmore Community Daycare. This is Alison’s first cognitive Halloween and a pretty special day for her.
I got to walk with Alison and her playmates to the Seniors Center for a hour of playtime and singing with all the “Grandmas and Grandpas.” This was special and reminded me of how fantastic it must be, or is, at such a young age and that “we” must do everything we can to maintain that and allow them to fully embrace each and every special day. Watching the seniors visit with the kids was touching and good reminder to keep the focus on “them” and enjoy in these shared times.
Here’s to to watching those enjoy there first experiences!
