...


This week, it has been cold here as winter struggles to...be.

This week though, the crocuses came out boldly (but in their tiny way). Dormant season is almost over and life is...waiting.

It is exactly how Ive been feeling...

This week, there has also been running. For the first time in I don't know how long, I felt like intead of walking the track-running it. Running away from whatever has been holding me back. Insecurities. Fatigue. Wrinkles. Laundry. Guilt. Swollen leg. Reality. With my legs pounding to Coldplays steady rhythm, I started. And for two glorious laps I ran my heart out.

Oh well, you have to start somewhere.

This week, there has been planning. Like-for the FUTURE. Ive looked into going back to school. Doing something long-term.

I havent thought this way since diagnosis.

This week, there has a great deal of waking up early and not so many naps.

Energy level high, all around.

This week there has been...hope. Huge amounts.

...the rest is still unwritten.

My bulbs are coming up too! There's just something about it that's good for the soul.
This is the best post I've read on anyone's blog in a long time. I'm so happy you're feeling this way about life. Enjoy it. Embrace it. Use it, while it lasts!

Isn't it funny how the first Spring flowers give you such hope that Winter will eventually end. I went outside today and measured my flower beds. Can you tell I am ready to plant and welcome summer?The other flowers my mom plants that are great border flowers are impatiens:)
