A different road to travel.

Those who have followed me for awhile, know I tend to be chipper and positive.
The death of my oldest son, in May, has put me on a different road.
One I had not planned on, with many valleys.
As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand ...

The death of my oldest son, in May, has put me on a different road.
One I had not planned on, with many valleys.
As an artist, I have always enjoyed the shadows for that is where you find the secret joys, the ones not so obvious. A bit frightening at times, but thinking of the good keeps you going along.
The dark is also what makes the light even more amazing, bright and cheerful.Things stand out, with contrasts. Colors dance and harmony comes to view.
As a gardener, the deeper evergreen colors are cooling and refreshing, along with the pops of a flower, not expected.
So it is with my life. I must live in the shadows, for now, with pops of amazing light.
My faith leads me through it all and grows ever stronger.
Friends and family, my little Tigger and Kenny himself, being closer than I think, are there to lean on, along the way.
Do I think about losing weight and health the same way I did?
No.
I am kind to myself, have good days and bad.
Take walks and think thoughts and pray.
Stretch for peace of mind and to feel closer to my 57 years than older.
Sometimes I feel so old now. It snaps me into drinking more water.
I know I will see Kenny again, but until then I need to take care of me, not really for myself, but for my other two children who are still living.
There are moments of light left.

One of the greatest moments in our day is realizing that two weeks ago your body couldn’t do just what it did. My moment will be when I cross the finish line today.
This is the day I do my 12 K. We will be heading to the race about 7 AM finding parking church service and walking to staging area. People watching and playing with the beach balls .
The elite wheel chairs leave at 8:30 followed at 9:00AM for the elite runners. The race starts The race is now on for everyone else the last runner will cross the start line at 10 AM moms and dad pushing strollers
my group leaves between 9'30 and 9'45 AM thanks for trhe new cloths
