There has been so much going on I don't think I could tell you all about it without writing for hours so I shall point out the high points of this trip.
It is now May 19thand I am still in remission. Fifty-eight days of living a life I had thought was gone forever. Please understand dear diary I had come to the place of peace during the nearly three years of being so sick with RA and will be again if it awakens. For I know the beast is only sleeping and am aware remission is not a cure.
We are still camping and I am having the time of my life. Hopping out of bed every morning, getting dressed in street clothes, fishing, walking, doing heavier housework, staying out (such as shopping) for hours, cooking, baking to my heart's content, finishing an entire plate of food during meals, taking pains with my hair so it will be pretty, wearing sandels, wearing my watch, sitting or standing without pain, playing games with Hannah for long periods of time, talking with Zach while moving around, waiting upon myself when I need or want something, etc.... The list could go on and on. See, dear diary, I take nothing for granted in my daily life. Even a sip of water is an amazing thing to me.
Hannah and Zach have been to the campground on the week-ends and in a week will stay with us longer being school is out. We have so much fun together. Even though they come down hubby and I have lots of "alone" time together. We both enjoy each other's company. Whether we are active or just sit quietly together we are bonded. Just feels right no matter how loud or silent we are. We fit together like a puzzle.
I guess I will close for now because I am tired but remember dear diary...the next time you take an ordinary step, maybe it is not so ordinary. Maybe it is an awesome thing. Maybe it has the power to take the breath away from someone that had it, lost it, then found it again.
Goodnight dear diary.
