January 5th is a day that completely rocked my world...two years ago. The good new is that I was so busy that day that I didn't even slow down to remember. I count that as a HUGE blessing. The 5th was on Thursday...and that morning, I was blessed to do SO many things that I wasn't able to for so long. I got my girls ready for school, went to the TENNIS class that I used to go to, I drove my girls to different lessons after school, I took them to a Zumba class with me, and I rode an exercise bike...then came home to make dinner and have a fun family evening. My days aren't all that busy, but it was such a great example of LIVING and my heart has been so full.
Another small milestone: I got fully cleared from all of my doctors to return to tennis...and it is something that I had really missed. It is amazing to me that I can play. My vision has been limited since my brush with near starvation a year ago. Many of you also know...but I lost ALL feeling in both legs from my knees down from severe nerve damage. I still think it is a miracle that I can walk...but I can. I step on court with my raquet in my hand and I just smile. One of my goals for this year is to get strong enough to enter a tournament. I have a long way to go...and need to regain so much strength, but I can't wait to do it! (Side note: your bodies are such blessing...treasure them and be good to them. They are AMAZING creations!!! Please never take your health for granted!)
