I’ve Been Away, But I’m Back!
While I was missing in action – an awfully long time – I hope you kept walking. I did! I had a bunch of family members with health issues and, since there’s only one of me, I was spread pretty thin. And, just over one year ago, my first grandchild was born. That was a joyous event! Since I share childcare responsibilities for her on an ongoing basis, I am busier than ever. Not complaining! Through it all, I walked almost every day.
While my mother was hospitalized and while she was moved from her apartment to a nursing home, I walked. The week she passed away (in April, 2017), I walked. When my husband had a health scare and a brief hospitalization, I walked. The day after my own eye surgery (two surgeries in 3 days!), I walked.
So, no excuses. I walked around the inside of the hospital and nursing home on bad weather days and around the outside of those facilities when the weather allowed. I packed my walking shoes every day and had full intent of using them.
I also am blessed with two great friends who are also avid walkers. These gals calmly altered their walking schedules to help me meet my walking goals each day, knowing full well how helpful it is to me for stress reduction and to get good sleep.
Those crises are past. Healing is occurring. Friendships and walking continue. Now, I am able to help one of those friends through a difficult time, listening to the venting while we walk. What goes around comes around, don’t ya’ know? And lucky for me that it does.
In future blog posts, I’ll share with you some new walking trails we have discovered. Some new favorites and some we’ll avoid. Most all good, tho’. You can’t keep up down!

Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you’ll get back 100% of your former life – your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude. You can trust the information you find here. It’s from a dedicated walker. Trust me and your life will get better! I promise.
