Trying really hard to focus on the positive

Trying really hard to focus on the positive

I’m going to really force myself to find some positive things to celebrate.  I’m also gonna try and focus on some positives in regards to Gavin.

Here’s something that I thought was pretty cool. 

On the way home from our hellish day of appointments, I stopped to get cheap dinner because I was just too spent to even think about cooking. 


I decided to try and see if Gavin could handle walking in and buying a $5 pizza.  I was parked right outside in case I need to jump in. 

We rehersed what he would say and off he went. 

He waited in line, told the woman behind the counter what he wanted, paid for the pizza with a $5 bill and brought the pizza back out. 

This was a pretty big step for me as well as Gavin. 

Great job Gavin…..
