This week I'd like to talk about the most exciting holiday of the year, Christmas! I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings about it and what Christmas means to me.
Being with family and friends and eating a lot of food. I also wake up at 5:30 in the morning and bang on my mom and dad's bedroom door demanding to open presents. My aunt will be here on Christmas to spend time with our family and hers. I already have a Christmas list ready and I already know what I am getting everybody.
I wish my dog was here, to be with us on Christmas and my uncle. My pain is very hard to deal with, two important people and an animal that was a part of the family that won't be there to celebrate with us but we will be thinking of them.
I am also happy because we have no day program for two weeks. But I will be happy because I will get to see the staff at the day program on January 4th 2016 then it will be the month of my birthday and I am going to be 27 years old.
Our authors consist of staff and clients from ADS.
