I made it to the beach! Going out to a beach my family enjoys, we had forgotten there is a short hike out to the beach from the car. Normally, this would not be a big deal at all. It was the longest walk I’ve done to that day while recovering.
Early in the dating years with my wife I bought Carl’s Jr. (Fast Food,) brought it to my house, lit some candles and invited her over. Candle light dinner! That was over twenty-five years ago.
Fast forward today, our kids set up a reenactment of that dinner.
While I was in my wheelchair I tried to get as much sun as I could. Thankful for the sun
And most of the time I had a cup of cacao with amazing herbal mushrooms (Lion’s Mane especially, because it helps so much with nerve damage.)
I know I keep saying this, but finding gratitude in the small things (to me) are equal, if not greater, than being grateful for the big things. Really, I strive to find gratitude in all things.
In the picture, I’m relaxing in the sun. Gratitude for the sun’s warmth, light and energy. It truly feeds life and healing.
