Bravery comes from within, and from using all of your senses. It's okay to take a moment, listen for voices, feel the breeze, and clearly make your decisions. It's okay to pause for a moment.
Getting help from others for the things you can't do yourself is okay. See those stairs? They're really scary when you're newly blind. But I'm tapping a lot on them with my hand to show Wink she can go on to the next step. We're a team when it comes to those stairs. And if they're too scary some days, that's okay.
A little time in the garden, every day, is wonderful therapy. Having a pal to do this together is even better. Wink sticks to me like chicle pegado (chewing gum) and goes where I go. That means when I thin the carrot seedlings, she's there to inspect. And sniff to see if they're ready to eat yet. No, not yet. That means we move onto the snap peas and yes, those are good to eat. For both of us.
A jaunty scarf can elevate an everyday outfit to fresh and stylish.
We are taking small steps, every day. And the sun is coming out this weekend. So, so, so, happy.
