I know I said I would be around
and it has been a month since my last post.
I went visiting family figuring I should do that before winter settles in.
I turned 49 while I was gone.
My one sister had rented a rollator (walker with a seat) for me.
In recent months I have not been able to get around very easily,
and because I finally admitted to myself that it would benefit me,
this is where I was the morning of my birthday
having brunch with my sister.
The weather was beautiful, we took her dogs
and walked quite a ways and then sat on a bench overlooking the river.
The colors were amazing.
There were geese flying on and off the water, It was really nice,
oh and I felt so alive. The company was great!
I really could have stayed there all day.
Mom and most of the family had a birthday party for me
in the evening. It was a perfect day.
Unfortunately my hubby was working and could not be there
but we had celebrated before I had left.
Because of my new found freedom 2 days later I found myself
at Elbow Falls and getting around with no worries of falling.
My Mom and sister were so proud of me.
We had a wonderful day, and being the nature lover
I am I could of stayed there all day of course.
It was breathtaking!
My Mom and sister climbed out on the rocks.
It was good to see them having fun.
Can you believe this view?
I feel that my world has expanded and so many doors
have opened for me because I no longer have to spend my
days in my house for fear of falling.
The next morning I took off by myself and
took my walker and walked farther than I have in the last five years.
When I got tired I sat down on my walker, and then I would go again.
I conversed with a lot of others out enjoying the day.
When I made the way up the hill behind my Moms place
and then came down the path, she was standing at the patio doors
and she waved and I waved, knowing she was as proud of me
as I was of myself. I continued on for awhile and made it back
I am hoping I will build my strength up and after a while may
not need to use the walker.
OH, guess what I got for myself for my birthday......
a new tattoo,
yes I did
and I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
Hope you are all well,
May you have your Very Best Day!
Until next time,
