I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID IT!

I don’t go out very often since my brain injury – usually only with my big sister or my “gal pal” for support. But, my neighbor had a mission planned. (I have become good friends with my neighbor, and I trust her. Also, we are similar in age.)

Baby Shower

My neighbor’s granddaughter is having a baby, and the baby shower is planned soon. I adore her granddaughter, but I know I just am not up to attending something with fifty people. Most of the guests will be strangers to me. So, that’s where our mission came in.

I told my neighbor that I would pay for all the food she would need for the party and also have her help me pick out healthy food stuff for the baby as my shower gift.

Well, we headed out and had an amazing time! We shopped at two stores I was unfamiliar with, but knowing how much I trusted my neighbor, I didn’t have any anxiety. I only had curiosity and fun running in me.

Grocery Store

I even helped her find two things she couldn’t find anywhere, and I reminded her about something she would need badly for what she is making! (She left her list at home! LOL)

I remembered all of my purchased things and carried them out of my neighbor’s car, but my neighbor noticed I forgot my favorite thing of all. I left my coffee mug in her car! As I was running out to yell to her, she thwas already at my porch and smiling, with my coffee mug in her hand!

Just two years ago, I would have never had the courage to go out with someone I only knew from talking to when she’s hanging out clothes. But today I did it! We also made plans for two more outings …
