I did it!!! the garage is CLEAN!! Is it OK to be proud of myself? 23 months ago I had brain surgery, could only walk by holding onto furniture, couldn’t bathe myself, and spent most days laying on the couch watching Ellen DeGeneris. 18 months ago I started driving again. 17 months ago my husband was diagnosed with Cancer and I was diagnosed with oscilopsy (bouncing vision) and post-surgical fatigue. Then Steve passed away 6 months ago. So maybe cleaning the garage doesn’t sound like any great accomplishment, but to me it’s like a miracle and shows me how far I’ve come in the past 2 years. Add to that my cleaning of the cold room and outside shed, and I’m convinced I can do hard things. No matter what, just keep pressing forward. I received a lot of help form my family, and I am so thankful. Basically I worked for a couple of hours then rested for a couple of hours, and repeated that pattern until I finally finished. Yippee!! Although I must say I do miss having Steve here to celebrate with. And now I wonder what I’ll do now that I’ve reached my top goals. OK let’s face it, there is still a lot to clean up around here. And now I know I can do it. This reminds me of a lady that I heard interviewed last week about being disabled. She said she focuses on her abilities, not her disabilities. That’s a good strategy. I can do this!
