Trying to get moving...


I can't tell you how much I feel like a big blob of nothing these past few weeks. I've laid in bed and watched alot of movies. Pride and Prejudice, TWICE. (the long version)
I've learned something really cool about my body though....it WANTS TO HEAL. It's working hard to heal the damaged nerves that were so recently messed up with this last attack on my spinal cord. My feet are stiff and feel like burning ice. I decided yesterday to just get over the anger I've felt at times toward my feet and legs or my body. Even in this situation - it's all miraculous....working overtime to find ways for me to be able to function normally again. I've even noticed that i get hungry more often - like it's needing more food for energy. Which of course, I'm happy to oblige it. The body is truly an amazing gift. A work of art - even in it's imperfection.

Okay...so, enough about that.....
I started my Fourth of July charms yesterday. I love the old vintage flag postcards. They are cute....and it feels good to do some "normal" things again...

thank you to all my friends- for your prayers and thoughts and support.
I miss you all. I miss cleaning house. I miss walking around Target.

Hi Kim,
It's me again, Cyndi...you know just the other day I was thinking about when we were all teenagers, and you were in our kitchen and said, "All I want is a Worthy Young Man to take me to the temple and I want to have a bunch of little children. And I want to have Family Home evening." Well dear Kim it looks like you have gotten all your heart desired as a teenager so many years ago. And look how wonderfully good the Lord is to us, he added beautiful grandchildren to go with your wonderful story! All My Love to you Kim...hope you are feeling better soon, Cyndi

I'm glad your doing a little better. I miss you. I would love for you to do a bracelet for little Emma's blessing. Let me know if you are feeling up to it.
