Looking Forward & Finding Joy in Life
Friday, January 01, 2016
It's been a long time since I've blogged. Hard to believe its been 6 years since I joined SP. Forgive me for rambling, & I will try to focus .
To those who've read my earlier blogs a few years back when my Dear Sweet Hubby became my personal trainer things were going really well. We were working out almost every day, the weight was coming off & life was good. Then in a blink of an eye everything changed & that sweet man of mine was in a wheel chair with numerous neurological issues. His attitude was amazing & we would still go on the rail trails on his good days. I would strap him in the chair & push him for miles. We could still be together, & there were still precious moments to be shared. It's so very hard watching the one you love disappear a little more each day. He fought such a long hard battle , before the Lord called him home. I know he's in Heaven & one day I'll see him again. It's been 9 months & since that day ,& although we had 40 years together it wasn't nearly long enough. He was a good man , a great sense of humor, a loving husband, & he never met a stranger, Always the first one to jump in & do whatever he could to help you out.
So moving on without him is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. But he was a man who loved life & squeezed every moment from it he could. I have decided to truly honor him, I must move forward & begin to live my life, not just exist, & marking time. That means taking care of myself, eating well & exercising, & looking for joy & counting my Blessings. Letting go of the sorrow, the depression, the pain, & the weight. I am sure I will stumble a bit along the way. When I do I'll just pray for God to strengthen me as I continue on my journey till I'm called to join Him in Heaven.
So today I took a walk in the brisk sunshine, & found a bit of joy in talking with Velvet & scratching her ears, & burying my face in her mane. There's something about the scent of a horse that's so sweet.
So that my friends is Progress, & for today that is enough.
Progress not Perfection
