Lillian and First Steps With Treating Herself

May 31 2022

Lillian decided to treat herself to quesadillas and churros to celebrate taking a first step in improving her quality of life.

She has a difficult time going to doctor appointments, and struggles with actually leaving the house. Lillian wants to learn and master independent living skills, but has been stuck and resistant due to mental health.

I’m happy for Lillian, and actually deeply relieved to have this step conquered. 😥😥😥 As we were leaving the appointment, she commented that I should get her a treat for having taken this step. I responded that perhaps she should treat herself. 🎉😍🎉 We should always take that step to treat ourselves, not waiting for others to do it.

The drive back home …. Lake Tahoe is incredibly beautiful. Words and pictures simply cannot capture the grace and peace.

It was library day for Team TLC. We have wanted to visit Incline Village library for years! Today was the day!

Thomas and Lillian had a great time and Thomas said he never wanted to leave. Beautiful drive up and back down Mt Rose.
