Day 414: Resilience

” Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes”

Many people have described Madison as a resilient little girl. Although she has many challenges she faces each and every day, she finds a way to keep going and then is able to experience special moments and successes. Mommy and Daddy feel that Madison is learning and living through such important life lessons at such a young age that will make her an extroadanary person as she grows, and they are grateful for that. 

Madison had a very long week of not feeling well, but other then swimming – she made it through all her therapies with success. After lunch and a nap with Nana, she spent some time with Stephanie at Variety Village. She had some “moments” that any typical two year old would have on a Friday  afternoon, but her hard work and determination outweighed those. Mommy and Stephanie were very proud of her. They worked today on all different kinds of walking. She walked in and out of her session with her walker, they walked with a harness, walked with bands around her hips, and walked with some help from Stephanie and her scooter. It was a great way to end the week!

     

   
  
Madison loved singing the National Anthem and “ok Blue Jays” as she cheered on her favourite team in their home opener.
