Taking a quick break from a long work day for a quick Mom post….
In light of Lily’s recent posts about new seizures and new challenges, we’ve had a lot of conversations/comments about how Jess and I are “inspiring” or “amazing” or “so brave” or even more, “I couldn’t do it”. While we can fully appreciate that these comments come from a place of love, it can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. We do what we do with Lily is because she’s our daughter and we love her. She brought so much joy and peace and laughter into our lives, just like any other child brings any other parent. What we do is not a choice. It’s simply doing what any other parent would do. You act.
But this girl, she says it so much better than I ever could…enjoy.
