When the weather is where we want our spirits are lifted. During the winter with the fire going and hot cocoa our libation we love watching the softly falling snowflakes. When we just want to stay home and cuddle with anything that breathes we welcome the rain. The sun comes with the promise of spring and we want to clean and be renewed with every flower bursting forth.
Michael my former mover and now a friend will help build the stairs in the garage loft, store Christmas/winter in the loft and do some other chores. He turned his life of drugs/crimes/time around when he told the judge he needed to leave Oklahoma and that life or he would die and his son's needed to come with him. There are times a judge listens and Michael is now almost 6 years clean and sober. He has family here. I am so proud of how he is raising his sons. An inspiration.
My body needed sleep so my morning is a tad bit late. The added amount of walking has increased some pain but it is needed as I move forward to be the best I can health wise. At the age of 72 it is imperative that I move as much as possible or I will end up like too many elderly people that can barely move. No one likes pain but as long as it isn't doing me harm the plan is to continue.
