Today was a special day for my youngest brother and his family. He was able to ordain his son, Payton to a Teacher in the LDS priesthood. We were able to be there and to socialize with family. Tim did a great job!
I didn’t think I was going to be able to go because I have been really dizzy the last couple of days. But I needed to go, to get done up, to visit with family and to get out of the house. I love these visits!
Regardless of religios belief, these moments are very special because they bring families and friends together. These are bonding moments.
Being that I was so sick for so long with late-stage Lyme disease, I am trying my best not to miss these kind of things. I’m trying to reassimilate back into society. I have felt like an outcast because my social skills were lacking and because I had not been able to attend bonding activities. I learned so much from the experience of being sick, totally growing as a person. While I missed so much, I also gained so much.
Now is my opportunity to rebuild. I am rebranding myself. I am breaking out of my chrysalis.
