Mike asked if I could run some errands for him this afternoon which I LOVE to do. I like going for a little drive to pick up parts and just listen to the radio.
When I got home, to my SHOCK, I saw Erika LAYING by the large dumpster near the drive way.
She looked up at me and smiled. Then I saw Alli and Mike fairly close by.....
He motioned for me to NOT get out of the car. She was waving me by, like "Mom, I got this!"
I pulled up to Mike and rolled down the window. He said, she fell and she wants to handle it all by herself. I think we need to let her."
I felt tears begin.... I HATE it, that things are so hard for her. And she is such a good sport! For that I am so thankful.
She REALLY wants to do everything herself, and for the most part we let her....I mean, we did send her to Colorado to go Skiing... be still my heart! But laying by the TRASH just hurt my heart!
So I waited in my car and Mike said, "Look in your rear view mirror"..... We both watched with Alli, as she GOT HERSELF UP!
She FIGURED OUT what to do and solved her problem by HERSELF!
We all shouted for joy and I honked the horn and waved!
I still felt teary, but she didn't see it. She saw me smile and wave and cheer her on, because that is what I'm supposed to do.
But it still hurts.
