Tomorrow is a new day

So they say that you need to say six things positive to make up for something negative. Today was a draining day on all levels; however, we are happy to have our health, employment, shelter, each other, family and friends. I suppose when you look at it that way it doesn't seem so difficult, but it feels difficult. Sarah is making progress on many levels but is so depressed and down. She is having such a hard time being here and we keep trying to remind her that she has done nothing wrong. We tell her that her body needs to get stronger. We are so blessed for all that we have and must remind ourselves of this as a motivation to lift us up.
Sarah did take a few steps today which was wonderful to see. She is a little unsteady on her feet but did very well with assistance. Sarah's dinner never made it to our room tonight so we went down to the cafeteria and we had a dinner date. Smiles from Sarah were far and few between today; however, she did enjoy getting out of her room to check out the playroom and stroll around. Tomorrow is a new day.
