Another Year Under My Belt


Today…one more year passes, quicker than one of my posts, it seems.

I am coming up on my 5-year mark of Cancer-free(ness) this November, and all is well there.

The older I get though, the more my body revolts. The Fibromyalgia makes mornings almost unbearable until my medications take effect, and I can walk upright like an actual human being.

I have decided to try Yoga…I just need to physically start, but also need to mentally prepare.

I will do it at home and not in a class where I would more likely than not fall on my face. More preferable for sure to protect my pride. I have videos, and now that we have reliable, unlimited internet, I can YouTube till my heart’s content. Now it’s just a matter of doing it

Trying new things is scary, and I am more of a stick-to-what-I-know kinda person. I still eat like a teenager most of the time and could live on cereal and Kraft Dinner. (My cereal is Raisin Bran though). With Fibro, fiber is a must.

My Dad and ‘Mom’ stopped by yesterday and brought me the best card that had me laughing.

It made my day.

I received a text this morning from my step-son. Simple and to the point…..Happy Birthday! Perfect.

My 18 year old ‘baby’ posted on Facebook:

Then there’s Josh…..

My 1st born. The child that made me ‘grow up’ along with him. His loving tribute

The one and only who who post a pic of his Mother in her housecoat, looking 10 months pregnant. Flattering, right?

Good thing I love him, or I may have had to kill him…lol. His Birthday will have a surprise from me, his generous and loving Mother. Game On!

It’s the little things that make the biggest imprints on our soul. These are so important.

Kindness.

A gentle touch.

Loving concern.

Acknowledgment.

Understanding.

Pearls of wisdom for everyday life.

I am going to spend my day relaxing, crocheting, having a birthday dinner down the road at my in-laws, and spending time with my family.

Who could ask for more?

I am very blessed to have them all.

And Happy Fall everyone. My favourite season full of colour and cooler weather.

Have a wonderful day and Thanks for listening.

Nikki
