This morning my doorbell rang, and to my delight, my favorite florist truck was in front of me.
Our counseling staff at @cca_cares sent just the right things to provide care and comfort during this season of grief after losing my dad.
I love the scent of the olive tree candle, and I love hearing the wind chimes outside my bedroom window.
These days I’m taking things a little slower as I dictate this while taking a bath before walking. Because of my recent knee replacement, I sometimes do a pre-and-post hot water treatment to encourage my muscles and my motivation when I don’t feel like getting out and moving.
It helps to have accountability, and I will have to answer to my in-home physical therapist on Monday. I’m so grateful to my friend @lrasley for introducing me to a service I never knew existed.
It’s weird to think about re-entering my life this week after being out of it off and on for over a month. I’m praying for my mom as she will spend next week at her home as well, without all of us around her. Thankfully, she has lots of God’s family to watch over her, from her neighbors to our church family and the women she leads in Bible study.
I’m going to be taking my reentry slow, though, because the kids are on spring break for the next two weeks. I want to catch moments with them, but they’re getting older, and since I’m not completely mobile, there are certain activities they now prefer dad do with and for them. I’ve had to adjust to this reality because he used to travel, and it was all up to me. Yes, we are those parents who argue about who gets to drive the kids because we both want to spend time with them.
