My physical therapist told me last week I could begin exercising outdoors.
As soon as I returned home from his office, I got myself ready for a walk.
I left from the house and walked a half hour on the plowed dirt road nearby.
I was careful.
I was v-e-r-y slow....
I was exhilarated!
At one point, I realized my face was wet with tears.
How embarrassing - I was crying tears of joy.
I pulled myself together and kept striding.
Now, I go for a walk nearly every day.
I take a hiking pole but only use it if there is an icy patch.
I'm able to walk over an hour most days.
My ankle is stiff by evening, but I see improvement daily.
I continue meeting with my PT.

Winter landscapes are constantly changing.
Clouds move in and bring snow.
Each dawn bestows the gift of a new day.

She recently received a troubling diagnosis, so I send her healing thoughts.
My One Good Thing today is the body's ability to heal.
I wish you strength.
I wish you sunshine.
I wish you healing.
