I know, probably not the most exciting or interesting occurrence in the world, but to me this is Huge! I’m really full of excitement this morning!
It’s been so long since I’ve had the physical or mental energy to do anything.
I’m excited that I feel well enough to be up and I’m definitely ready to get something done.
The reality is I’ll probably be on the computer for at least another couple of hours, but that’s big. See, my computer has been on the coffee table for months. It’s just been sitting there, willing me to get something – anything – done, for months. Yet, I haven’t. I couldn’t. The energy wasn’t there. The thoughts couldn’t or wouldn’t flow, whether for writing or reading or any other work. Not only that, physically it was more exhausting to sit up than to lie down. Physically I was so ill that sometimes sitting up made it worse. It’s been a struggle these last couple of months. It really really has.
Nonetheless, life continues to move forward. Monkey Boy keeps growing and learning and changing and doing all the things that toddlers and growing children do – play, talk, engage with their environment.
He’s been awesome all the time I was sick. He’s is so sweet and thoughtful, concerned and caring. I’m in awe of the great empathy he has for his age. He’s rubbed my back, put covers on me, asked if I’m ok, and truly shown concern through his actions, words, tone, and expressions. Monkey Boy is so impressive and I’m really glad that in the midst of his playing and otherwise destroying order throughout the house, he showed concern for his Momma.
I’m really glad to be sitting here writing this pretty quick note. I’m glad that I’m up and feeling energized and able to start accomplishing some tasks today. Monkey Boy’s still sleeping. I’m tempted to go back to bed myself, but to be up now is a good thing. Besides, I’ll go back to bed soon enough for more rest.
This small thing shows me that yes, I really am getting better, which makes me so happy.
I want to say thanks again for all the well wishes and concern you all have shown me over the last couple of months. I really appreciate it all.
I’m not quite ready to be back in the full swing of regular posting, but the time is coming. I want to get more order to our home again, get back to a relatively regular routine of cooking and cleaning, playing and relaxing. Blogging is part of all that, but for me the more pressing matters are not what here at the computer.
I’m sure each of you understand the reality of living and mothering. I’m not entirely sure that I’ll be ready in a week’s time, but I do know I’m not going anywhere.
I know that as I continue to get into the swing of things, my time on the computer will increase. I’m grateful to be able to know this truth and share it, just as I’m grateful for the space in which to do so.
I also know that today’s show of energy is only the beginning, so I’ll see all of you around as I come back into living!
