with hypotonia often struggle to reach developmental milestones. Logan was having a hard time walking or standing up, so his physical therapist recommended the family get him a gait trainer. Logan’s parents, Christian and Justin Moore, didn’t know how long it would take to get a walker or if their insurance would pay for one at all. Rather than watch their son struggle for another day, Christian and Justin turned to the internet. On YouTube, they found an instructional video explaining how to build a gait trainer out of PVC pipe. The family took a trip out to the Home Depot in Cedartown, Georgia, to get the supplies. When the Moores explained their project, the Home Depot employees told them to leave the store, but it wasn’t because they didn’t want to service the family. “They started getting the parts together and told us they would put it together and would not charge us for it,” Christian told CNN. “They told us to go get ice cream and come back in an hour.”

The store manager refused to let the Moores pay for the materials or the time it took to build Logan’s walker.

Today, I get to cook for others. I get to hear stories about people who can’t cook for themselves anymore or people who lost 30 pounds and were able to control their diabetes because they could eat healthy again. It’s a human connection that comes through food and it has made such a difference in my life. That’s the currency of home economics. Augee has been living on her own for about eight years through undergrad and vet school, but she’s always lived in a dorm or apartment. Learning how to take care of a home with a spouse is a different ballgame. Fortunately, Augee has generations of good examples she’s learned from, including her mother and her grandmother. She’s also incredibly organized and Bryen loves to cook and work in the kitchen. There might be some bumps along the way, but I have faith that these two will learn how to run a happy, healthy home together.
