A Message to MONTANAWALKER
Saturday, May 23, 2015
I know you're taking a spark break, so I hope you see this! Thank you for your response to my last blog - for sharing your experience. I would not have guessed you had knee problems and now I understand your commitment to walking in this context. And I have received your white light and good wishes.
Your comments, along with Morticia's, Don's, and ONEKIDSMOM lifted me up and pointed me in a healthier direction. The compassion was palpable and then I also realized I was feeling sorry for myself!
I can walk and swim/water exercise, and probably bike. I can take glucosamine again, wear better shoes, be more attentive to my food plan for weight loss, and strength train. I can see the surgeon for an assessment -- and that doesn't necessarily mean surgery. And who wouldn't want to eat dried cherries?
So, I hope your summer job is wonderful and refreshing and your walking paths are awesome.
I'm taking the dogs on a walk right now; pictures forthcoming.
