I actually went shopping in Target today. Not the run-in-and-grab-whatever-is-needed-super-quick shipping I usually do to conserve energy. But, I actually got to browse a little with Samuel. When we walked out of the store, much to my surprise, I wasn’t completely exhausted.
As an added bonus, I rode my bike with my family.
For the first time since we’ve lived in this area, I got to explore one of the trails my family has fallen in love with. As I trailed behind the four of them, my heart was light. I was actually on my bike, y’all!
With my family.
In the Spring.
On my bike.
The ground was cool and the air was crisp and fresh and so sweet. New buds were on everything. We even spied our first budding Dewberry plants! On the way back, we observed some low flying ducks. We talked to a neighbor who was gardening in his front yard and shared some onions with us.
It all felt so very….normal.
Can you hear my excitement? Do y’all understand how big this is?
It dawned on me that not everyone who goes through cancer gets to live to tell the tale. I do. And, I get to soak up these moments with my family.
My body is tired, but more of a normal tired. This has been a big day. I am very grateful and very humbled.
I may not be able to do this tomorrow, but today I went shopping and I rode my bike.
Thank you, Lord for sustaining me this day.
