Kevin has been home 10 days now with a long road yet to go (Several surgeries needed when he is stronger) but with the help of our faith , family and friends we are determined to keep fighting. He fights to learn how to walk all over again and probably will never gain back his hearing loss but his vision has slightly improved and we are hopeful maybe someday it will . Our life has definitely taken a major turn but who knows, maybe the best is yet to come. We love spending time together and enjoy creating together. Kevin has always had a job that he had to travel all of our married life ,so I am going to spin this around and make this a blessing instead. We get to be together everyday.
You never realize how drastic a life altering event can change everyday living. Now you have to plan everything. Even a simple car ride to a Dr. appt. I never realized how much we lack in handicap accomidies. We will adjust with the new normal in time.
It's been several months now since I have picked up my sculpting tools and paint brushes , but today I plan on creating. It's time to seek healing for the soul. There are many ways to be creative in life and its not always with a paint brush. I plan on creating with laughter, smiles and just the joy of being. Ohhh I might try and sneak some clay in today , if I am able, as it has always been a way of comfort and healing in troubled times. I had a lot of time to sit in the hospitals with a sketch book in my hand and it's time to be creative again even if only for a few short minutes a day! I can't wait to get back to creative blogs.
Take time today to stop look around and be thankful to just be. I'll be in the new hammock our son bought for his dad. Now the trick is once I get him in it , how do I get him out of it?? If you drive by and see us on the ground you may need to stop and help me get him up lol! See laughter is good for the soul!!! Paint the skies in laughter today!
