Saturday 5/10/08

Jessica did well today. We had to wake her up early for Mother's Day breakfast with her grandma. We went to Cracker Barrel. And then we stopped by to see Mia. No riding, just a visit. We let her loose in the paddock, and watched her show off running.

And then Jessica had a friend over for dinner and to watch a movie with us - a horse movie - This friend has a horse too. This is the first time she's spent time with any friends in quite a while! So this was nice. I kind of suggested it for that fact, and since she was having a good day. (I just hope Jessica hasn't overdone it today.) She is tired...

Wow! Sounds like a great day. Having one of those - even just once in awhile - does wonders for your spirit.

When our kids were at their sickest, we relied on movie nights with their friends. It was one of the few things they could do, but just seeing their friends really perked them up. One of the worst things about this illness is the isolation.

We're big on movie nights around our house anyway, so that works for us. Jessica did brighten up with a friend over, which was really nice.
