Sunday Mother and I met Brian, Melissa, and Brendan for lunch to celebrate Mother's Day together and had a great time. I'm excited about the summer programs Melissa found for Brendan to participate in. Goodwill is sponsoring a summer session for autistic kids that his CBIP teacher in the elementary school he attends will conduct. She's really good, so it will be great for him. He's also going to social skills "camp" a couple of evenings a week which should be interesting. Can't wait to hear what he says about that even though it might be much later. Hard to tell. He's also been taking private drum lessons on Music Row every week and is doing well with that. Melissa said she thought it was helping him focus at school.
I'm so proud of Brian and Melissa! First of all, they have a wonderful relationship, and their marriage is a true partnership. That foundation helps Brendan, too, because of the love and security he gets from it. They are involved parents and do everything they can for Brendan. Because of it, he thrives.
I heard from Kathy, and we had a good, long conversation. I'm so fortunate she found me and that we have a close, loving relationship. What a lucky mother I am! And daughter, too! My mother set the tone for this for us as her mother did for her. And on it goes!
