I was having a tough time with the weird weather, lack of utility, and health issues that were giving me a roller coaster ride. Here is a paraphrase of it…
Not going to break my stride, not going to going to slow me down, I got to keep on moving.
I help my mom specifically because when she retired from teaching and counseling her body really slowed down. She has post polio syndrome and uses a wheelchair a majority of the time to get her around.
We have our days in a non-wheelchair friendly environment. But we make the best of it. I am her arms, legs, and tech ninja. I load the car with the must haves and think ahead for her needs. I find podcasts that can encourage her when life sends us curve balls. She provides the encouragement I need in our new home. Reminding me to train myself for my future. I am half her age which allows me to see my future through her experience.
