The kids are playing at the park on this finest of July evenings. Andy is happy and content buzzing about doing his own thing around the caravan. I sit outside and enjoy the view of the loch, Bailey asleep at my feet, as I take stock of my life and surroundings. The last year has been so challenging. Jen and I are almost constantly tired. My life is essentially good though and we have so much to be thankful for. I try to grasp the moment knowing it is important to savour these times. Andy has made great progress in coping with the challenges he faces everyday and we are rightly proud of him and the fact that we support him to the very best of our abilities to do so. I dwell on these thoughts as I enjoy the peace, tranquility and beauty of our surroundings attempting to build a deep resolve for the difficult times we are sure to face on our journey.
Many thanks to our friends at Sense Scotland for making this possible.
