moving forward

I'm reminded how very grateful I am for the journey I have made over the last couple of years. There was a time I thought I would never be whole or well again. There was a time that I couldn't stand without being sick and had to be helped to the bathroom. Then I got better but couldn't go anywhere or do anything in the dark. Then I got better but couldn't do too much or get overly tired or bend up and down much. And so it continued baby step at a time, 2 steps forward and one step back. Now I find myself walking around in a moving RV in the dark, bending up and down to help kids- and I feel fine. I never take the ability to be upright, to walk, or to feel balance for granted anymore. And I'm so grateful for all the 'life lessons' and spiritual insight I gained in that journey that sustained me in the one that followed. I feel happy and blessed to be where I am right now.
