Things are going well. After only a few days, C. is showering, eating fruit and soup, and walking about. Her determination is remarkable.
This morning I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup. I figure that will be a good hearty food. I also made a big fruit bowl which she seems to like. I enjoy cooking and what she wants to eat is easy to fix.
I know that whenever I think things may be sad or discouraging, I will hear something that will truly make me realize how good my life is. A friend in the program lost her 19 year old son to an overdose this week. What insanity that someone so young is gone. How does one wrap their head around that?
I have heard that we are to live life on life's terms. I think that if I have a strong program, I can get through what life has to offer. It may hurt like hell, and I may feel like I am the one dying, but I can survive if I choose to remember that the pain will lessen.
Yesterday I felt happier. I went to the boat for a few hours. Last night though, as night came on, I could feel dread coming on. So we watched a movie, The Bucket List, which reminded me that I have things yet to be done. It was a good movie to reflect on.
And today is another good day. The sun is out. The dogs are napping, and I am going to join them soon. Happy Saturday to you.
