Happy Resilience Day

Today has been a great day so far.  My mom let us sleep late, so I woke up around 10:30.  Em and I played the Wii for awhile and lounged around while my mom made Christmas cookies.  Then we decorated the house and moved the rest of the boxes back upstairs for my mom.  After that, we played Chess (Em got me a beautiful Chess set for Christmas!) and then gave Sydney a bath.  It was really nice to just have a relaxing day with my mom and Em.  Right now, we're making plans to go over to Long.wood Gard.ens to see the Christmas lights with Lindsey.  I've always wanted to see those lights.

Today marks a big, huge day in my life.  It's been 5 years since The Unbloggable happened.  It blows my mind that it's been 5 whole years since the event.  But, it's definitely been 5 years... 2003 to 2008.  Age 16 to age 21...  unbelievable.  

Resilience Day is a holiday that I invented, and it's just a time to reflect and remember that no matter how tough times can get, we can always find it within ourselves to be strong, compassionate individuals, and remember that there is always someone who is hurting and struggling more.  

I love you guys.
