Home Again With Friends
I did push a little too much over the weekend but my adrenaline was pumping and nothing was going to slow me down. Finally, Sunday I was at a brunch that friends gathered at and realized...I had hit a wall. So curled up on my friends bed in her room, friends came in one at a time to just sit and visit, talk, laugh, hug and just spend some time together. I realized as ridiculous as I felt laying on that bed, I had some pretty amazing friends who were pulling for me and just as happy to see me as I was to see them!! I am beyond blessed to have them in my life!
Monday was a day spent resting...for which my body was profoundly grateful!! I have discovered that while I am getting my energy back slowly each month...I am really not use to being around more than a few people at a time! Talk about sensory overload! But as difficult as it is...it makes me happy at the same time! I might be overloaded and get tired faster....but at least I have those people around me again that makes me tired! It is a pretty good trade off!
Each evening friends have come by with dinners and their wonderful company!!! Sitting and talking or watching a movie makes my life feel as normal as it is going to get for now:) A taste of what it will be in hopefully a few more months...just without out the laying down:)
Last night I was introduced to an Appletini! So VERY good! Girls down at the hotel bar laughing, having a drink and just having a good time!!! Again, life as I remember it!!!
Tonight I get the chance to thank a lot of people I don't know for their unending prayers and support through this whole thing. I am excited, nervous and scared all at once! Trying to fight the urge of just hiding once I get there! But I want to meet these people and thank them...then sit back and watch as much of a friend's talk on the book of Tobit as I can. Praying God gives me a little extra energy to last a little longer tonight with so many people around me!
Can't stop smiling...and hope that continues!!
