Second, I'm so excited for today! I've been waiting for a month now for today to be today! I've bought glow stick necklaces, bracelets, and wands for Chase to play with. I'm making Firecracker Cupcakes (from Chasing The Sky Bakery) for a party this evening. I'm so excited to play with sparklers with Chase too! Last year he wasn't all that into it. He ran off during the fireworks show, not because he was scared, but because he was bored. I'm hoping this year he's more into it.
Third, this post is short and sweet, but I wanted to tell everyone to have a wonderful holiday. Enjoy today and the fun it offers. Try to enjoy your life in this moment. Even if for just a day, pretend you don't have a mental illness and you party it up!
Be safe, have fun, hug a military person (man, woman, old, young, whatever), and feel better!
