Getting What I Needed.

I wanted to say since surgery I’m getting exactly what I needed. And it comes in various forms and structures. Whether it’s coffee, dinner, or whatever, good things are coming to me. I needed only to open my heart and receive them. So what are these things?

The first thing I’m getting is Mama love. I reached out to the Mama Bears from Free Mom Hugs, and almost right away, I started getting text messages, lots of cards, Facebook adds, and a lot of love coming from every corner of the country. Not to mention all the love from my adopted Moms and Grandmoms from various groups.

Sister love, too. Friday night, I was at Gender SAFE, and I simply didn’t want to let go of Shelby or Christina. Last night, I was with Shelby, and the same thing. I didn’t want to let go of her when we said good night. But Shelby is like that, and so is Christina. They know I’m a strong woman, but they know I need someone to hold my hand from time to time. We all have schedules, but when we see each other, there is nothing but love.

Love from my church. I said I needed help with coffee hour next Sunday, and someone stepped up. Plus Jen was eager to see me this morning. Gave me a huge hug when she saw me, then gave me a huge chunk of bread at Communion. Everyone’s been happy to see me on the road to recovery!

Finally getting the movement I need. I bought resistance bands and am finally using them. However, I am limited in how to use them. Usually, they require standing up. Right now, I can’t stand up because I’m taking it easy with my foot.  But I’m also using my scooter much more, plus using my arms and good leg to scoot up and down stairs.

And I decided to spend money on things I need.  I ordered new makeup, new dresses, new shoes, music, a movie, and new workout skirts. Got a manicure too. Purple with a glitter top coat; everyone says it’s pretty.

More importantly, I’m getting sleep. It’s nice to sleep in until 6:30-7:30. This won’t last long.

There’s more, but I can’t think of it now…
