Activity two of the week completed! Yesterday, we made the pilgrimage to Busch Gardens so that Charlie could meet Elmo. The trip turned out to be everything I hoped it would be.
I was surprised there was so much for her to do. She saw the live show twice, met all the characters, rode several rides, played in a playground like area, and splashed on a splash pad type area.
There were a couple of moments I had to fight back tears. There are a couple of reasons why:
1) We are so fortunate Charlie is here to share in a day like yesterday (or any day) with us.
2)Charlie has worked and fought harder than I can possibly imagine. Nevertheless, she is full of joy, enthusiasm, and is almost always smiling. To see her have a day like yesterday was incredible.
It’s true, she probably won’t remember any of it. But, yesterday, her world was as magical as she makes my everyday.
