That people wonder if I have Cerebral Palsy
It means I'm thriving thanks to God and medical science. I never thought I could successfully travel overseas with my baclofen pump. I'm grateful that my body has held up. It's hard for me to remember life before the pump. I'm grateful. This doesn't mean I don't get tired. I get tired. I'm just having to focus on the blessings.


A week in the Cotswolds
unlimited tea and rose
endless walks in gardens

Week on a yacht in Capri
Negronis and gnocchi
Swims abound

Grilling out
Getting caught up

The truth

The truth is this post may not put me in the best light. These past few weeks have been an eye opener even when I've wanted to keep my eyes closed. I've conquered some fears, consumed by others. I spent vacation in Montreal and Newport RI. I throughly felt the love of the Canadian people. Newport, I loved every minute. I learned that I'm capable of a lot of things. I realize I take stock of what others say versus God's. I realize I battle my flesh daily. God worked miracles to make this trip happen. And even when He works miracles I doubt He will do it again. I wrestle with God over what I wants and what He wants for me.

Would you rather

Eat escargot or caviar
Drink bellinis or beer
Read Hemingway or write a letter
Sail or sunbathe
Visit Positano or live in St. Barts

I feel most peaceful in an empty church.
I may do a no holds barred disability post.
I want a cookie.

Last thing you bought?
Last thing you ate?
Last thing you drank?

It's Sunday. I'm thinking. Sometimes it's a good thing, and vice versa. I've come back from vacation grateful yet tired. Accepting life for what it is, is hard. Waiting is hard. Not having answers is hard. Going on vacation doesn't get rid of the problem. I'm seeing that only God can change anything. Are there other things on my mind?  Yes. Will I disclose them?  No.

Life is beautiful yet utterly exhausting. It takes everything I have to not lose faith. Have to trust God that my life will work out.

The beautiful blessing of life is that God in His omnipotence never leaves me.

I took a week off. I went on vacation.  I had the best time. I had time to appreciate blessings, and get new ones.
There is nothing like sitting in an empty church.
I have never had such an appreciation for my mother.
God is so faithful.
You will teach and you will learn.
