I love to walk and run. It is a peaceful time for me to reflect and enjoy God’s beautiful landscape.
When illness or disease strikes, we need to rest the body for proper healing. But do not get comfortable on the sofa or in the bed.
After a few days or weeks, if you’re able to, venture out for a quick walk. If you’re not able to go outside, walk around the house. Your endurance will increase each day. Every step counts.
Walking and stretching the body are key factors in the healing process. Carve out a few moments each day to exercise your precious gift.

If you have ever been employed by a company, in the midst of completing all the required forms, you have to give the name and number of your emergency contact.
My emergency contacts have been my mother and sister. Once my son became an adult, I added him to the list. Never did I imagine that either of them would be called.
During my crisis, my son arrived to the hospital first and called others. Shortly after, my mother, sister, cousin, aunt, and several friends showed up.
Having a name and number to record is a blessing, but when you have a tribe to show up, it leaves you speechless.
I have learned over the years that love is an action word. It involves pausing your life to care for another.
Just a little something to think about the next time you are completing your emergency contact list.
Talk to you soon.
I make a daily decision to stay grateful and positively focused on solutions despite the circumstances.
I am a two-time breast cancer thriver because of the grace of God. He has me here for a purpose; to spread love and care for his people.
I listen to my doctors, take my medications, eat healthy, and exercise.
I may have the occasional pity party, but after a few minutes, God reminds me of my strength and purpose.
We all have our trials. But remember to pursue what makes you thrive. Be blessed!
Talk to you soon!
