Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone. Today is a day of celebration! Jesus is risen! We are saved! Life is good!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. This has been, probably, the best holiday we have had in many years. Dalton is doing wonderfully, his meds are good, he stayed the entire children's service with his volunteer aide. They did not have to leave at any point! David had a wonderful week, he had 6 friends over most of yesterday for a birthday party. He has friends this year! He is happy, he is more flexible, and he is fun to be around. I think we are finally getting a medication which is working!!!!! Thank you God.

All in all this has been a great season. My mother, and two of my nephews were up all week. It was a good visit, we all had fun, the boys all enjoyed each other's company, and David had no extreme paranoid situations. On those occasions he did feel stressed, and you could hear and see his distress, he was able to step back and calm himself, and/or, take a Clonopin.

I have learned that mental illnesses are not a desired condition, but they are not the end of our world either. These illness can be a blessing in that:

We learn to be more sensitive to each other
We learn to cope in stressful situations
We learn to keep going after failure
We learn to lean on God.

God bless you all this Easter season. You are not alone.

There is always a light, no matter how dim, if only we seek to find it.
