Success can be laughter around the dinner table, a peaceful evening and a good night’s sleep. It can be executing the ordinary skills of daily living, like grocery shopping, washing laundry and taking out the trash.
Success is a quiet morning, a day of good health, and a day out of the hospital. It is the companionable enjoyment of friends and family. It is witnessed in moments of independence, self-control and self-determination. It can be as simple as accepting a “no” and moving on.
