Thank you for the wake up call. It was sorely needed. Strictly entertaining my mind with no regard for your condition was wrong. I finally realize that, without you, I would be nothing.
It is now forever ingrained in my being that the mind's functional capacity directly correlates to the body's ability to support it. For as long as I can remember this, you will get what you need in order to help me remember. God willing, we can't lose.
I apologize for having turned a blind eye to your plight for so long. I stuck you on a shelf (or sofa) when I believed you had abandoned me as a relic of days gone past, when it was I which had abandoned you for shame of the condition I had put you in through constant abuse. I promise to never take you for granted again. We are going to be together for the rest of our life, and we will strive, as one, to do so in style.
P.S. I thank you with all of our heart for responding so graciously to the care I have shown you recently. It shall not go unrewarded. How about a nice long bike ride shortly after our morning eggs and oats?
