One of my colleagues was just released from hospital after spending almost 10 days there (4 of which were spent in ICU) and as she visited us at work, she said "I'm looking forward to coming to work tomorrow and just having a normal day... go to sleep tonight, wake up, walk the dogs, come to work..."
How enlightening! We fret and worry over silly things when the basics are what matters most. We very often take our health for granted, but as SParkers, we are making a difference by being here as we're on the path towards improving our health.
So as I focus on this, I make a wish for a normal day. I slept relatively well, woke up feeling good and getting ready to make my trip home. So far mother nature is not cooperating as we have freezing rain/ice pellets this morning which is supposed to change to rain later, but I checked the forecast where my sister lives and they are getting hit with SNOW. I usually avoid driving in these conditions at all costs but I am so anxious to head home... so I will play it by ear and most of all, I will make sure I play it safely. I have prayed to my angels to carry me home and back safely.
I will go to work until noon and then decide what I'm going to do. If my sister says the weather is too bad, then I will delay my departure to early tomorrow morning.
I talked to the girls last night and they are of course having a blast and enjoying the nice 80 degree Florida weather (laughing at me when I told them the weather I was having).
And so my workout will be skipped this morning as I get packed up and on stand by for departure.
Found this quote and thought it was a good one for today...
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.~ Helen Keller ... May mother nature cooperate so that I can arrive safely to visit my family and friends...
