Every Wednesday participants in the live cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow enjoy camaraderie. They celebrate each other’s successes and offer empathy during challenging times. Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 proved no different. To tell you more, I am co-host Zachary Fenell.
Shortly after 8pm ET members began joining the conversation.
A holiday weekend caused long-time chat regular Blemi to almost miss the chat. Thankfully her mind reminded her that yes indeed, the day is Wednesday. I inquired about the reason for her long weekend and she explained the Canadian holiday Heritage Days. The holiday celebrates the different cultures and customs that make up Canada.
Meanwhile a fellow long-time chat regular Hannah looked ahead to another celebration.
Although she felt rough, Hannah stopped by to say hi. With her birthday days away Hannah hoped to feel better next week. My co-host Devin Axtman wished Hannah an early happy birthday.
To keep the celebratory birthday theme going, answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “What is the most memorable birthday gift you have ever received?” Leave your answer in the “Comments” section.
Continuing on, the reasons to celebrate kept piling up.
Co-host Jorge Oteiza, also known as Blake Henry, apparently came across a street named after him. Ha, ha!
Resuming seriousness though, passionate chat regular Chris possessed a great reason to celebrate.
In some exciting news Chris shared she will start grad school October 1st. She plans to study instructional design. Fantastic!
I bet “Fantastic!” additionally works to describe your answer to the extend-the-conversation question. Again, this week’s question asks, “What is the most memorable birthday gift you have ever received?”
Share below in the “Comments” section. Then mark your calendar to join #CPChatNow each and every Wednesday. The fun begins at 8pm ET!
Until then, remember. Don’t blend in. Blend out!
