My mind is distracted, working out plans for our upcoming road trip. Without thinking, I lift one foot to burrow my leg into the pajama pants, followed by the second leg.
Wow! I stand amazed. I didn’t fall over!
It has been well over a year since I could do a seemingly simple task, one which I had always taken for granted until I could no longer do it. Today’s mark of improvement gave me a much needed burst of positivity.
Oh, young people. Be aware of the amazing feats your body performs and enjoy the ease with which it moves. Walking down the street the other day, I noted the strength in my muscles and the coordination of hips/knees/ankles. It was so marvelous that I was almost giddy.
Wow! Look at that!
I wish I were as fat as I was when I first thought I was fat is an oft-heard mantra. Well, I also wish I were as strong and agile as I was when I first thought I was weak and clumsy.
Now every action elicits Wow! Look at that!
