It has been a long time since I have written. I have been sick this month with bronchitis and I have not gotten healthy very fast. I am frustrated because I love to be active and I am too tired and weak to go places. I’m sick of Dr appointments being my only outing. I feel better today, but I don’t have a lot of energy.
I wanted to let everyone know that I am listening to a lot of books. I am in a book discussion group for the camp I speak at, online. It is The Land Between. I like it because it’s an honest book about how hard life is when we are just waiting for good things to happen. I know there are many people who have much worse situations than I do, so I am glad for my life and my family. But it is hard to have so little happening each day because of my health.
My Mom and I want to go someplace warm with Gregg each winter but it’s too hard to do that. Maybe take a long road trip. It isn’t easy for me ot travel without help so it’s a good dream, but I would love it if we had a motorhome with a lift for my chair. We would leave today!! It would be such a good thing to be by water and have sun on my face again.
I am trying to listen to my heart and know that I will be able to get out soon. I could use some encouragement today. I have an appointment today with Karen, my music therapist. I am working on another song. It has taken a lot of effort to get it out, but I feel really excited about it. I have been listening to my CD and trying to not forget my poems….I am More Than my Body.
Here is my song, Ever After with my poem I AM, read by my sister Leah. 10 Track 10
I hope you are well today.
