Back in the Pool

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Life has gotten is true, if you don't have plans something will fill your time. Life is put back into perspective for me. I am going to go visit a 22 year old woman tomorrow, the same age as my son, and help her celebrate her last birthday. She needs a new heart, has diabetes, and her kidneys are shutting down. She wanted to live till her birthday on Thursday. I have done hospice clowning before, but this one is hard...there are so many variables involved. I know my friend is glad that we are going, that I can drive her, that she will be able to spend time with her. Time is so precious. And we are being robbed of it by our unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise. So tonight, I went back to the pool. Swam my heart out. Swam till I huffed and puffed. Made a real wake....who cares? I am working my heart. I am not going to take today, or tomorrow, or the next day for granted. Life is short. So I will try again tomorrow to eat right, exercise, and although I am going to be helping others, I am still going to reserve time and energy for me so I can be here as long as I can.

Have a good night!

    Wish I lived closer to swim with you! Hit the treadmill half heartedly last night, but it was a start. Praying for your visit. Life is hard, but God is good. Love you sis!
