This diary entry is part 5 of 11 in Lily's diary dated 01 - July 2021


Sabby was right!  It was a big day!  After I took my shower I came downstairs and Sabby told me to get dressed to go out.  I asked her what was going on, and she smirked.

“You’ll see”, Dave said.

So I got dressed, and Liz had somehow shown up, and we went to a pancake place for breakfast.  I LOVE PANCAKES!  Almost as much as chocolate.  And chocolate pancakes!  With chocolate syrup!  So we went there and Sabby told me that today was Lily day and we would do whatever I wanted!

The children were a little upset because they don’t get days, but Dave and Sabby explained that they get birthdays but no one knows what my birthday is, and I deserve a day, and today was going to be my day.  They seemed to understand, but they got pancakes, so they knew better than to complain too hard anyway.

I’m not gonna lie.  I cried.  I cried like a little girl.  I was so happy!  I’ve never had a day of my own before!  I had chocolate pancakes and chocolate milk and chocolate EVERYTHING and it was so good!  Liz had something lighter but still enjoyed herself.  They even had the staff come over and sing “Happy Lily Day!”  It was embarrassing, but so great!

Afterwards, they asked me what I wanted to do, and I said I wanted to go to the new waterpark in the area.  It’s a huge indoor waterpark.  It was going to be a hot day anyway, and it sounded so nice.  So they took me home to get our swimsuits, and we went there, and we spent the whole day splashing and swimming and having fun!  Even the kids had a good time!  They said that if it meant they got to go to the waterpark, they would be fine with more Lily days.  I think Beth (one of the children, she’s 14) even got sweet on a boy!

After we got home, there were presents!  Everyone bought me a present!  Dave bought me a new computer, and not a cheap one too!  Now I can YouTube!  Sabby bought me a beautiful dress I can’t wait to try on!  Even the kids got me things!  It truly was the best day ever!  Then we had the best dinner ever!  I can’t wait for next year, I love Lily days!

But it’s not about the presents, or the waterpark, or even the chocolate pancakes.  They love me.  They really love me!  I’m crying again!

Love you all!!!  ❤️
