A day that did my heart good.

I didn't wake up this morning until 9:00.  That doesn't happen very often with me.  Usually like clock work I am up by 7:00, 8:00 at the latest.  I just have been so tired lately.  This morning I was determined to exercise.  I jumped on the trampoline for 20 minutes.  That is the most I have been able to do in months.  I felt pretty good afterwards.  I went and took a long shower while Bill was at the store then when he got home I took Priscilla down to Moore Park for our walk.
I did 1 1/2 laps and decided to sit down and give her a drink of water and let her rest.  She drank and then sprawled out on the grass panting.  After 5 minutes or so we got back up and she walked another half lap and splat!  She was down right on the asphalt pathway and was not getting up with coaxing!  LoL

I just stood there waiting, because there was no way she was getting up.  Every once in a while I would tug on her leash and basically began to drag her.  lol  Now I know where the term "bull" headed comes from.  She is teaching me so much!
We finished our walk and then I drove through the park.  I love, love, love it there this time of year.  The colors against the green luscious grass is just gorgeous!

Now... about 13 years ago give or take a year or so (my mind is jello lately) I joined my business with another here in town.  The woman who owned the other business (we both had property management businesses) and I became friends.  More than friends, she was like the sister I never had.  I loved her.
I won't go into details or fault because that doesn't matter, but we split up abruptly and never spoke again.

Over the years I would see her occasionally and just avoid eye contact.  All the while I missed her terribly.  I hated how we left things, but was too proud or stubborn or afraid of rejection to go see her or make an attempt to get in touch.

Today on the way home from the park, my car took a left and I ended up in her driveway.  I took a deep breath (which is hard to do on O2... a joke!), and walked up to her door.  I stood there for a minute and got the courage to ring the doorbell.
She opened the door, looked for a brief moment to try and grasp the concept of me at her door and we just hugged and cried.

We will have to build back up the trust we once shared so easily, but I am so thankful to have her back in my life.  We exchanged phone #'s again and got in touch on face book and I look forward to reconnecting with her.

I came home tonight and my heart felt good.  What a waste of many years.  I am glad I stopped my car.  I had driven by before, but didn't have the courage to stop.
I love her and have missed her so much.  My mom would be smiling down.

I forgot to mention that Fernando came over 2 days ago and helped Bill get our Christmas lights up.  Now when everyone else is struggling in the cold, we will go plug our in and smile.  :)

That's all I have tonight.  I just had a tremendous day and wanted to share.

Thank you Savannah, even though we really haven't spent much time together yet, it is truly a blessing having Kathie back in my life. I hope you and your friend can find each other again too.
And, yes... Priscilla is like having a clown around. I hope you are doing well. I haven't talk to you in a while. ((((Hugs to you)))

All patients who have been prescribed with additional oxygen, which is provided either through oxygen tanks or oxygen concentrators, have to adjust their lives to their new reality. This implies both the effects on lifestyle and monitoring their oxygen intake.
