A new day

I went to bed super early and spent a couple hours battling an awful lot of pain. Whew! That takes a lot out of me. But....I did sleep really well and woke up feeling much better and hopeful.

I think my pity party is over.

I'm not going to go out and run a marathon today, but hoping to get a few things completed. Helping my daughter get packed and ready for her sophomore year of college. After that comes a quiet, peaceful house. I will miss her but this is the way life is supposed to work; kids should become independent and we are pleased with her progress.

My day is off to a good start (for me) and I thank those who prayed for me. I'm looking out at the blue sky, the gentle cool breeze and the water of the lake and thinking about the cycles of life, the ups and downs and still learning (at my age) how to navigate this crazy world we live in.
