As we enter this holiday season, one thing has become clear. Our family needs time. Time to heal. Time to celebrate. Time to give thanks. Time to be with one another without expectation or deadline. Time to be still.
So, I am giving myself the gift of presence and will be taking a break until January. I want to place my heart and time where it needs to be most. At home….and physical therapy…a lot of physical therapy!
My heart is full of gratitude for the healing process. This week we added a “granny walker” to our entourage of cool medical supplies. With that came first steps and the first signs of reclaimed independence. The team at Dynamic Rehab is taking such good care of us! There is still much work to do and many tears are shed, but we are surrounded by goodness each day as we continue to move from one moment to the next.
Consider the many gifts of this holiday season. What gift does your heart need? What adjustments need to happen so that you can honor the wishes of your heart? I don’t know the source, but I’m an over-thinker and love this quote,
Sometimes you have to stop thinking so much
and just go where your heart takes you.
Your heart knows what no one else does. You deserve to honor and follow it’s call. My hope, and my belief, is that our family will be strengthened as I quiet the voice of expectation and honor the voice of my heart. It is the gift of presence.
