Water aerobics class, that is...and I am extremely happy.
One of the instructors called last week to say that the class has been moved to a pool downtown, which is only a little further than where I was going before. Upside, class is back. Downside, I have to pay an additional fee along with the family Y membership I have. But if I go, it will be worth it.
Things have a way of working out, I guess, even when things look a little bleak. I've been kicking around, ok, splashing around at some other classes without much success. Now, the deep water class I took did kick my tail, but I wish I were a better swimmer...I'll give it another try and maybe I'll ask for a belt to help keep me up better. Or maybe not. One has to have a goal to strive for, so why not do something more challenging? I'll keep it under consideration.
Mom is doing better and is over her cold for the most part. I think I neglected to add to my last blog that when I went to the store to get Mom's nasal spray and cough drops I ran into a friend of my younger sister and her mother. They were telling me about a woman who had worked in their home when their relative was ill. So, now I have a lead on a home aide. Coincidence that information I needed just kinda popped up at the grocery store? Maybe...or maybe not.
I believe that for the most part, we get what we need in this life, even if it isn't right when we want it (despite what I said in my last blog). Things have away moving into our paths when least expected sometimes but for a reason.
The trick is to keep the mind and the heart open for things life brings to us. It can be a little frightening when we are confronted with the unexpected or a with a challenge. It can even be a little exciting, to look at possibilities never seen before.
