Totally Thrilling Thursday!!!!!

We went to the gym this morning and I took my class. We came home and did some cleaning. Tonight we ate at Chick-Fil-A and then went to story hour at the library. It was fun! The really and truly thrilling part happened at Chick-Fil-A. Those of you who have been reading for awhile know our oldest has selective mutism. Both my husband and I had great fears about placing her into a military lifestyle. We worried that this life style would harm her. I have actually been noticing the opposite down here. See before we moved she had been regressing. She had quit playing at playlands unless it was just her and her sister (or kids she knew well). She would not play trains at the bookstore. Even if a toddler waddled up, her face would go blank and she'd back away. Tonight, our little girl PLAYED with FIVE KIDS at the playland AND she was talking and calling back and forth and playing hide and seek with them!!!!!!! I was sitting there alone, in a booth crying. Thank you Lord!!!!!! It made me miss my husband because he needed to share that moment with me. It was amazing and made this day TRULY Totally Thrilling!

Wow, that is fantastic! Hooray for her (sorry I don't know her name)! It is tough when milestones happen and our men aren't there to share in it and that's a big one, no HUGE!

Yeah, I am a tad nervous about names and locations etc. Esp. with hubbies who will be absent a lot!
