For the fourth day in a row, I have energy. I have gone walking each one of those days and have managed to do some cleaning. It feels so good to feel motivated to do things and be able to do them. It's been months since I have, long before Mikael died.
Is the knee brace what's making the difference? Tuesday was such a low day. I wasn't sure I'd ever get out of the exhaustion and listlessness I had been feeling. Wednesday I got my brace and everything changed. I can move around without pain! Is that all I needed, pain relief and mobility assistance?
It snowed all through the night and there have been no ploughs through the neighbourhood--it's still snowing--so walking was a bit more difficult this time. Wading through three to four-inch snow will do that to you but I was able to do it. It's beautiful outside. The weather is warm, so the snow is damp and sticky. Because there is no wind, the trees and bushes are laden with thick snow. I wanted to take pictures but I haven't figured out how to do that yet with my phone. Besides, I didn't want to damage the phone by getting it wet with snow.
God is good. Even if this energy, both mental and physical, doesn't last, it's been a wonderful gift and gives me hope that I won't spend the rest of my life in exhaustion.
Thank you, God!
