A snow-lit path before me,
With cold hightened senses,
Following deer and coyote footprints,
Into the quiet of the trees.
All is well. My 95 year old mother is now living with us for several weeks, until we finalize the arrangements for her new assisted living apartment. It will be very close to us which will be nice. She is a brave soul, flying across country by herself, and making a huge move like this. I commend her for her strong spirit.
I have been struggling with worry. I worry about my mom, the country, and my own mental health as I have been having panic attacks at night and am sleep deprived. Thankfully, I have Mr. UT who is my calm influence. He is a project type guy, and so he sees things as a project to be figured out!
It’s rather boring here for my mom, as we can’t get her out easily. Our house has too many stairs, and so she is stuck in one level. We can’t take her anywhere with COVID raging in our state. We will be going on short drives with her soon! That will be nice!
Mr. UT and I are able to get out for short walks most days, and recently it snowed again. There truly is something magical about walking in the fresh fallen snow! We just love it!
I am grateful for so many things as I write this short post. When I get stressed, the best way for me to help myself is to breathe, be grateful for all I have and all the people I love, and walk outside.
Much Love to You All,
On Day 2260,
