Three months from today is my birthday, and I planned to kick off a renewed quest to get in better shape physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally first thing this morning with a great workout, followed by a balanced and productive day at home and at work. Unfortunately, my lingering cold morphed into a raging sinus infection that derailed these plans. So, I had to shift gears from doing to planning, as I rested and continued to plan how to make sure that I have much more to celebrate and be proud of in ninety days. Hopefully, my antibiotic and decongestants will join forces to usher out this sinus infection, so, I can get on with the business at hand. In the meantime, I will continue to do what is best for me to recuperate and recover-getting plenty of rest, fluids, and medication. Stay tuned for the comeback!
The one thing I was able to do for someone else today was to take time off of work to be present for my older daughter’s school presentation this morning. Although she is quickly heading into her teenage years and becoming more independent of me, she still needs me and wants me there for both the little and big moments in her life, including this morning’s presentation. There is also much work to be done, but it was still waiting for me when I arrived at work after the school event. These precious moments with my daughter will not always be there, though, and I am so glad that I made the time and effort to be there to watch her, beam with pride, and congratulate her on a job well done. It meant a lot to her, and it meant even more to me.
Just one thing each day . . .
