I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July! I couldn't go too the fireworks this year but my neighbors had a Fourth of July party at their house so I watched them shoot off fireworks from my kitchen window! Then I watched a Fourth July special on T.V.!
That's one of the BIG problems with having Cerebral Palsy or "C.P."! Is that you can't enjoy special events or activities without the help of a friend or family member! You can't MAKE someone help you, people help you because they want too! Besides people also want too be your friend! But please remember "there is a difference" everyone that is nice to you always isn't your "friend" they are just being polite to you!
Someone that is your friend calls or emails you on a regular basis and really takes a interest in what's going on in YOUR life! You also do things together with that person or those people! Someone that is an acquaintance is someone that you DON'T know real well, you just know who they are!
It's also hard for people with C.P. too make friends because they aren't able too go anywhere by themselves without someone taking them some where or without riding public transportation which can be very expensive! Sometimes people can't afford public transportation or it's NOT available where they live! So in order to go somewhere and do things, people have to depend on someone else! Besides someone may NOT want too take the time or they don't have the time too bring you where ever you need to go! But a lot of people in the world are nice people and they help out because they want too and that they are just nice people being polite!
Some people also want too take an interest in someone with C.P. because too them it's a WHOLE different world! Just as for people with C.P. it's a WHOLE different world for them to have a "NORMAL" life!
It's been a nice few weeks for my family and I! We've had lots of company! My family from out of state came too visit last weekend with their two adorable grandchildren! They arrived on Sunday and went back home on Friday!
So please dear reader's take my advice! Your lives can be a WONDERFUL adventure, you just have to be BRAVE enough to try new things! If you try something new EVERYDAY! You'll find that your lives will be MUCH easier and NOT as scary! The world can be a VERY scary place but if we give it best our best shot WONDERFUL things will happen when we least except it!
