I see it has almost been a full year ago I last visited this blog. I think that the long absence was a time of letting go and healing the loss of all that I used to do and be. Last week my dear friend and nurse Ashley asked if I would share my knowledge of homemaking with her.
A large part of my life was spent homemaking intentionally. It was a time of great strength and vigor. Those years set aside for a time are now beginning to speak to my soul. My strength is improving now. I have IVIG every three weeks. With the exception of joint and spine issues I am keeping healthy. Recently daily meals and food prep is coming back on line for my family. I push a little harder to keep us all fed and on a budget.
My spirit was crushed and broken those years after my knee replacement. The time in the nursing home really stole my light.
It is my hope to fan my flame and begin to burn brighter.
The teens are home for summer and with the many friends they have meals are a real challenge to keep up on.
My strength is limited so I am trying to be diligent to do what I am able to do.
