Today must have been a nice day in Maine because my relatives were at camp on China Lake and pictures were posted on Face book.  The lake was as smooth as glass and they were taking the boat out.  The kids were swimming and the adults were visiting and I would have loved to be there.

As I remain home bound and bed bound, I think a lot about where I would like to go and what I would do.  Sometimes. I invite my mother and we plan a whole day.  I have a steady supply of visitors who come to cheer me.  I am so grateful for that, so much better to visit live and in person.  I am going to love "in person", whenever I can, once I am on my feet.  I wince, when I remember how many times I promised to stop by, call or meet someone for lunch but didn't.

If you have an opportunity to see your extended family take advantage.  Family relationships are fragile and can get lost or damaged easily.  I recently missed out on seeing cousins I haven't seen since I was a teenager.  We grow up and spread out, go to college, move to dream locations and then we are broke and don't come home for awhile.  I hope to change this for me and my son.  I need to get back on my feet and get home more often.  I cannot walk at the moment but this gives me motivation to do my daily excercising to facilitate this so I can.

God Bless You All!!
