The Good Things

Sometimes it's good to remind yourself how good things are going.  The gratitude list.  I do this every morning.  Now I'm going to have to teach my nephew.  It breaks my heart-- the little five year old is now speaking which thank God is happening, and yet he says, "I hate myself."  For many nights now I've been uneasy thinking about this and can not get to sleep.  I want to tell him that maybe what he means is that he hates this situation.  Maybe he means that he hates the hospital but saying "I hate myself" is breaking his mother and my heart.  And I want to tell him, it will get better.  I want to tell him that he's making great progress and soon he'll be able to run and jump and "Party like a Rock Star."

So for Ethan this list is dedicated:

I can breathe on my own
My legs can kick
I can speak and others understand me
I can sing
I can smile
I can explore new things
I can snuggle up with family
I can laugh
I can sleep
I can enjoy dessert if and when I chose to
I can listen to my favorite music and movies
I can tell everyone to "Stop" and they listen.

May you find pleasure in the little things today.

Lots of love, light and laughter,
Yoga Girl

Here's the video that took me months to edit but here he is with his older brother jumping and goofing around-- and singing my new yoga song appropriately titled, "My Yoga Song."  Enjoy.
