Some Road Signs

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Special Spark Thanks to Bikecook and Candik48 for their recent encouraging words. You helped bring me back here today.

Things have been going...okay! I had a long hard day for a fibro person, yesterday, but I accomplished stuff. This was the second time in recent memory that I've had a busy, productive for me, day. I didn't do much that would strain a healthy person. I visited my relatives at a park. And after an hour, I was ready to go home.

But, it had been my suggestion that we all meet there, so I wouldn't have to drive as far. So, instead of bailing, I suggested we take the party indoors, to a nearby attraction. This meant we could avoid the worst of the Florida heat. To my surprise, there was general agreement to my suggestion and I was able to spend another hour watching the kids climb around on an indoor playground while I drank a frosty beverage and talked to my sister and nieces. The drive and the heat combined to wear me out and triggered a number of cramps during the night. But, I did it.

And so I feel that the time in the pool is helping to strengthen me, even if it is exhausting to face it every second day. I look forward to the day when "daily exercise" might be possible. Though, today, I shall rest.

    I absolutely love that you had a productive day! What wonderful news!!!! I have to admit, I get excited for you when you have a good day and your bad days make me wish I had a magic wand. I am grateful, flattered and honored that you feel encouraged by my words. It's rather humbling I have to admit since I think you have to draw on more strength and face more challenges than I and so many people do. I admire your courage and am inspired by your accomplishments.

    I hope you have a wonderful restful day and pray that all the powers that be grant you more positive and productive days than you can count! emoticon
