"Sunlit Vines"

Today, I took the day off to go to Roseville for my six month oncology appointment. My last bout with cancer was in 2008, and I am still seeing the doctors every six months. I am doing well. There is still a tiny spot on one side of my neck, and although it has grown very slightly, we are watching it carefully.  I have the highest confidence in my doctors. I have GREAT energy, and my over-all health is excellent. 

So, this morning before my appointment, after enjoying my coffee on the deck, I had a moment of clarity. My weight is up a little, and my knees were feeling a little achy. 
"Hmmm," I said to myself. "I know that I have to get my weight down and KEEP it down. It is important that I do everything that I can to promote wellness. I know that I feel better when I exercise, so what am I waiting for?" I got up, went in and pulled on my shoes and walked for 1/2 hour. It was a great start! (Where are you, Dawn when I need a walking partner? ;)

So I have a new and important goal--get up an hour earlier EVERY morning and exercise. I LOVE the cool mornings, love nature, and l know it will make me feel better. 

...feeling very grateful... ;)
