One step at a time.
So here are the wonderful things that have been happening.
Yesterday I had to put on my rain jacket to go to the park – but, of course, I couldn’t zip it up. As soon as I got on the trail I noticed two people ahead of me. I caught up to them and asked if one of them would zip me up. Well, it turned out they were two women who I know – had not seem them in years. How lovely – so I got zipped and we walked together and caught up.
Today, one of my hiking buddies, Paul, offered to come over on Friday – a day off for him – to clean my place. I have never ever had a man offer to clean my house. I think I am going to have to have a crush on him – along with every other woman in the group, of course. He happens to be the nicest person on earth!
People are being so kind and so helpful.
And I am learning to ask for help. Hard as it is, I am doing it.
And feeling humbled – and goodness knows, that can’t be a bad thing.
I am still overwhelmed with work. But day by day, one story at a time, I am handling it.
