Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

The Upside of Illness

Our son’s last Pinewood Derby with his fellow Cub Scouts was this weekend. In the past, I typically assist and am busy helping out and trying to watch our boy.

This year due to this new adventure in my latest illness, I knew I could not assist. I arranged for another to cover what I would normally do.

I was not feeling well at all the day of the event. I did manage to take a much needed nap in the afternoon.

We headed down to the event so that we would arrive about 30 minutes before start time. This gave our son plenty of time to fine tune his car, give it a test run and check it in.

And then the races began! It was so fun to just sit and watch the activity! So fun to watch the expressions and cheers of our son and his fellow scouts! I was able to lose myself in the evening. Cheering him on!


The best part of the night?!?! Our son placed first in his Webelo’s II Den and second overall for the Pack!

So fun to thoroughly enjoy his excitement….with only my body attempting to be a distraction!
