Well, I am pleased to share that I had a great day volunteering at the preschool today. Its a small home based school that my son went to when he was 4 and 5 and I have kept in touch with the director over the years. Her son has some similar issues as Ben so she's great to talk to. I used to work with preschoolers when Ben was younger at the YMCA.
It's funny how easy it is to be with them. The kids made me laugh and we did crafts which I love to do. We spent time outside in the sun on a beautiful New England Fall afternoon. It certainly lifted my spirits. Then I got a call from my former manager at the YMCA and she wants me to teach a craft class in the afternoon. I'm a little nervous because my brain is not functioning properly but if I can get some creative juices to start flowing I think I'll be ok. I managed to beat the anxiety this morning to get myself to the preschool. Small steps I keep reminding myself. I'm trying to focus on one day at a time.
