The month of April passed so quickly with family coming and going. A blessing to have most of my children and grandchildren in this cottage.
My son left for his home
in Thailand yesterday evening and needless to say he is missed. His constant reminder and gentle words telling his mother to walk slower, do less and to stop my lifetime habit of busyness was greatly appreciated. I plan on morning and evening to include the special yoga restorative poses with my usual practice that he showed me how to do correctly. Also it seems that with a different kind of
Winter that I did not do my walking as I have in the past. Watching my family walk morning and evening on this visit encouraged me once again to begin this practice. So it was started yesterday evening with a short walk of mindfulness steps...
A quote he sent me this morning I will share "What is most important is to find peace and to share it with others. To have peace, you can begin my walking peacefully. Everything depends on your steps."
Cataract surgery on Monday morning and my Jamie will be with me. Having a problem with reading. Would not have this procedure done if this was not a problem as all other visual
issues are fine....
Sjogrens continues to cause low energy and balance problems and do not like this as there is much I want to do.
Gardens are flourishing and so are the weeds.
A few images to share
Part of family at the long table. The first time I remember that I did not set it
with china and all the special serving pieces. Everyone brought a dish
and this was the first time that mom/grandma did not prepare everything...
