All of these things fall leaves behind, but fall leaves bring us a whole new world of color, majesty, rainbows and life! I love fall colors and was excited when Tolan's parents, Larry and Kay, invited me and the kids (plus cousin Rheanna Brown) to go on a scenic drive and picnic to Snowbasin (ski resort) up Ogden Canyon. Because of the "late" fall, many of the leaves hadn't changed color yet, but when we arrived at Snowbasin, in the cool shadows of the mountain, the colors emerged! We had a fun picnic together with Grandma and Grandpa and enjoyed the crisp air and cornucopia of colors! A beautiful family night activity!
For me, fall also leaves behind summer days in the hospital and at home in bed and brings a new prospect of better days ahead. Yes, I am still struggling, but thanks to all my wonderful friends and family, I know I will have the help I need, even if I don't like to ask. :) Headaches and body aches may persist, but life is still becoming more colorful every day.
Just this weekend, I discovered yet another facial muscle has started to move! And, after 4 months of not having my nose work, it suddenly started to work again on Saturday! (By working, I mean it started to "run", which may not sound fun to some, but since I have not had any use of it at all for months now, having my nose run was a big accomplishment!)
So, as much as fall leaves, it also brings, and for that I will always be grateful. Thank you to the many caring friends who emailed or called me, concerned about me after my last post. You are the colors that fill my life with rainbows and I love you all!
