Yesterday, I found myself forgetting about DMD. As we might think, this is a great thing, I realized how it can be bad also. You see I had two of my boys with me while I was shopping (Levi 4 who has DMD and Ben who is 2). I was trying to get through the store, and found myself getting irratted at both the boys to hurry up. At one point I look down and see Ben at my feet, but did not see Levi. Thinking Levi is probably playing on the aisle we were just on, I tell Levi "to come right now, and he needs to catch up." At that moment Levi spoke, and it brought me back to reality that I had forgotten about. He looked at me, and said "I am coming as fast as I can". I slowed down after that comment, as I saw that we was indeed not playing around, but was getting tired from walking.
As much as I never want to hear the words DMD again, I am thankful for how it does remind me to take time with my family today (even if it is just grocery shopping), because tomorrow is not promised to us.
