The Lemonade Award...When life hands you lemons...


The Lemonade Award is given as appreciation for those people who have been given lemons in life but have been able to make lemonade out of it all. I received this award from a good friend of mine, Jenny, that blogs about her family's journey on her blog The Fisch Tank. She wrote a bit about all of the people she awarded this to and here is what she wrote about Makenzie's Miracle...

Pam's Blog - Makenzies Miracle - The first person I really met, locally or otherwise, whose daughter had the same exact accident as Cici. She also understands what we're going through, although Pam is a lot more positive about things that I seem to be! We're definitely different people, but I'm learning a lot from her. I don't know how she can always be so positive, but the fact that Pam uses more exclamation points than even I do always makes me feel good. I think she just REALLY means everything, and I can't wait until I'm there too.

Thank You Jenny for the kind words and the pleasure to get to know you and your family! You have also been a true blessing to me and mine!!!

So here are the rules..

*Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
*Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.
*Link the nominees within your post.
*Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
*Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

Now on to the best part of this! .... People that inspire me and keep me going by giving me love, hope, and sanity! They have also been given lemons! Check out their sites to see how they have managed to make lemonade out of it all!!!

I would write a bit about all of these people but it would turn into a novel! Just know that you are all very important to me and I value your friendship more then any words could express!!! THANK YOU!!

Well... Makenzie....she had a FABULOUS day!!! The report I get from the school just gets better every day!!! Today her special education teacher told me that she talked sooooo much!!! She was not only babbling to babble but in response to questions and initiating conversation!!! Also she was able to hand her friends puzzle pieces to her friends when asked! I continue to be amazed!

She was happy at home and moving a ton! Her new favorite game is to bridge her hips and push herself backwards!!! She has even developed enough strength to do it on the carpet!!! WOW!!!

What a day!!!

I talked to the scheduling people today at the ABM Center. Their requests for lessons in March exceed the number of spots that they have. She said they may open another week which would be great! Please pray for this! I know that God is in control and that we will get there when the time is right! I really want to get to the center before we do stem cells again in April but only time will tell and only God knows and I know it will be the perfect time!!
