Today my parents leave for Cochrane Alberta where they will visit my sister for about a week. They will be gone for Thanksgiving, so guess who will be cooking our feast this year? I will of course have some help from my sisters, but I am cooking the pie, the whole chicken with stuffing, and the vegetables. We are going to have one of my sister's famous salads and some fresh rolls.
I am excited for my parent's trip but less thrilled about being left to my own devices for that long. My youngest sister should be back sometime Friday, and I do have a lot of things to do. I have started the afghan that I am making for my sister Linda's wedding in January and that alone could occupy me for hours. I may also see if I have time to take up water colour and other design work.. Who knows what masterpieces (or failed attempts at masterpieces) I could create!
Since I am feeling so much better, it is like I have a new lease on life. My world is full of possibilities again; I just have to be wise enough not to overload myself. Finding a balanced life is key to a successful recovery.
I am looking forward to my own Alberta trip coming up. In the meantime I have a few weeks of volunteering and Bible studies and groups and appointments.
Learning the rhythms of a life well-lived can be challenging, but thankfully I have a really good dance instructor. Love him! It only takes two to tango!
