Oh, the things we take for granted. Or should I say "I" take for granted. Take walking for example. People do it everyday. Here and there and everywhere. I did not miss it until the privilege was taken away and I was told it would never be given back. I never thought about how good it was for me. I just complained when I did not have a ride somewhere. I did not look at it as a gift. Until I was told I would never walk again, sitting down never was more terrifying to me. But, the man up stairs had different plans for me. And boy am I thankful for that. Now I walk for many reasons but the main reason is because I can! I still have aches and pains but I contribute that to getting older and my fat butt. I am glad to be rid of the "FAT denial" I was in. I love living a healthier life style and the friends that come with it. Thank you everyone here who has given us support. People do not realize how much one kind word can make a difference! Rock on Team Walk it off! Have a great day!
