I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.
Here are this week’s Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps
Cory Edmondson (survivor)…Two years ago, I was told that I would never drive again. That didn’t sit too well with me. My mom told me I could accept it or I could continue to work hard and, one more time, prove somebody wrong. I am now one excited dude – I got my license back! Never give up. Always believe in yourself.
Cory Edmondson (survivor)…I’m pretty proud of myself right now. I stood at the sink, washed and wiped the supper dishes, and put away 98% of them. I walked around the kitchen with just one hand on the cupboard. This was a BIG accomplishment for this fella. Never give up! 🙂
Jo Emery (caregiver)…This week in Australia, it is Brain Injury Awareness Week. For donations, we have BangOnABeanie and BangOnABarbie (“Barbie”=BBQ). I am so very proud of my beautiful twelve-year-old, who organised the BangOns with her local girl-guide unit. She talked about why they were doing them and a little bit about her dad. She also played a memory game with them. She raised about $30, which was really great. I’m a very proud mummy!
Kyle F. (survivor)…This puzzle took me ALL day. It may seem rather easy, with its being only forty-eight pieces and all, but I get distracted extremely easily – a heck of a lot more easily than before my TBI. So…score one for me. Also, this puzzle is as cute as heck with all the minions.
Kristina Hopkins (caregiver)…I’m about ready to donate blood again. I feel so honored to be able to do this every eight weeks. I’m a universal donor with my O-negative blood type, and it’s a blessing to be able to help so many. I challenge you all to donate if you can and are able.
YOU did it!
Congratulations to all contributors!
