This journey to health is at best a balancing act, keeping all the plates spinning and in place on the sticks: planning menus, produce shopping, cooking, managing cravings, work, family in sickness and health, time for fitness, the weather, fun, housework, family celebrations, friends, spiritual work, and on and on.
At other times, it feels more like a juggling act, making hospital visits, attending memorials, getting bills paid, pulling together tax information, finding something that still fits to wear to church or the Valentines dance or the pool. Sometimes a plate crashes to the floor, even for the best, seasoned, performer. Like when the bathing suit just hangs on you and you know if you wore it to the pool, you might as well be wearing your birthday suit, and where can you find a new suit the first week in February, except maybe on a cruise ship?
