dinner & a movie

I can't even begin to tell you how incredibly wonderful this day has been!! Let me start out by telling you that part of anorexia is social isolation. And because of that, Kylee hasn't done anything social with me or her sisters or her friends in a very long time. The last time that she and I did anything, other than go to the grocery store and the doctors office, was in September. We went to the Oklahoma State Fair, the health food store, Target (our favorite!), and to eat at Panda Express. I'm pretty sure that was also the last time she actually ate in public. But, today was different!! Today, Kylee, Logan and I went to THE MOVIE!!! It was the girls' choice and they chose to see The Princess and The Frog. Really cute movie. Then, and this is the BEST part.....we went to eat at Subway!! And Kylee actually public! She ate her normal sandwich (with cheese!) that she used to get and a bag of Sun Chips!! It was a normal lunch with two of my daughters! I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am right now! I know that this won't happen everyday, but I am thankful that it happened today. Kylee has come so far!! I can't even express in words how happy I am right n0w. Please pray that there are lots of days like this one ahead of us and that they aren't few and far between!



  1. YAHOO!! It is a cute movie. I am soooo excited about subway! Thank you Lord, for answered prayer! Our prayer is that you both, actually all of you stay strong.
    Love, Daddy & Mom

  2. I have goosebumps Miss! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!! You guys are doing GREAT!!!!

  3. Our preacher's daughter struggled with anorexia for years. When treatment after treatment failed, she joined Mercy ministry and was healed. She is such a strong woman of God. She is about the graduate from Vet school, get married and she goes mission after mission trip. Victory was won with Mercy Ministries. I don't know how old your daughter is, but this girl is around 25 now and her treatment at Mercy occurred about 4 years ago.

  4. It's the small everyday things like this that make it all worthwhile. What a big step she made, I'm so happy you were gifted with a regular day!
