Things are continuing to go well for us. My body is getting stronger each day and my heart and spirit too. We planted a “smoothie garden” over the weekend with all the yummy things we put in our morning smoothie- kale, spinach, etc… (Then it snowed- but I think the plants made it!) I went for a bike ride around Cherokee park. Felt great to do something physical that I love.
The mornings are the hardest. There is a moment right when I wake up when I am still kind of in the fog of sleep that I am so happy, cozy and safe. Then I remember the reality that has engulfed us. And I physically feel like I have been punched in the gut. I yearn for that peaceful moment to last a little longer. I am working at living in the present. The past is gone- I can’t get back the fearless, strong survivor who beat breast cancer and put it behind her. The future is unknown- I don’t know what will happen nor can I worry about it today. What I have is today. Today is a blessing and I am grateful for it.
Thank you for your encouragement on this journey. I hope it is a long, happy, one day at a time kind of adventure!
