Second chances

I have not worked since July of 2009. During that time, I have learned that I have an identity that doesn't come from the work I do. I have learned to let myself daydream, dawdle, and take time for whatever is interesting me at the moment. I want to find ways to spend my extra my time that make me feel useful.

Sarah thank you for stopping by my blog and the lovely encouragement you left behind for me by sharing your mom's struggle with mobility. Yes I now use only a cane but still need a caregiver's help to stand up or get out of bed. And though at home I do manage with just the cane, I am scared to walk alone outside without a care-giver by my side. I am blessed that I have a live-in nurse who is like my shadow and is with me always. As well as the fact that I live in a big joint family and have 2 grand-daughters-in-law and 2 great-grand-daughters-in-law who live with us and are totally devoted to me.

Incidentally my daughter's name is also Sara, but she spells her's without the 'h'.

Hugs, Prayers & Blessings to you
Mani
