Hi PR family!!
I thought I would post on my old blog. Memories that I have recently had to face. I have felt sad.....but excepted them.
I think a lot of you know I am a major horse lover! Once ME kicked me in the butt, I had to sell my horse. I'll never forget him though.
Horses are on my mind constantly...everyday at some time...it amazes me actually. Does anyone else have something that they know they love but had to give them up?
So I want to ride again. The memories I have of riding just fill my heart! I would like to try and see how I do. I wonder.....am I setting myself up for a big disappointment? Or more good memories.
I believe with ME we need to try the things we long for when we're not sure if we are able. We should never give up trying.
I know that I'm one of the fortunate ones. I can still try. Some of us are not able to do something so Big as riding a horse or even leave the house.
I hope you can find what would make you smile to try. Make a memory no matter how small you think it is.. If it makes you smile than it's really good! Maybe coloring, maybe calling someone you miss ( short call ). Take a nice picture of something that makes you smile. You took the picture! It's your memory.
So I will try to ride a horse. Right now I have to wait for a day I feel best..( Plus not so hot and humid). After all I have to drive there and home too.....we have to think of all that affects us don't we.
Maybe I'll just get to hug the horse, watch someone else riding. Take a picture. I'll take it....
not my hopes but I will still smile!!
Big Hugs to all,
Facing the Memories

Former Healthcare worker, cared for patients of all ages and their families. ME has now prevented me from doing this work. What it can't take away are my memories. Memories of helping people, memories of things I've done that brought me joy. Looking back doesn't have to stay sad. Memories are a gift to smile about. Sometimes for little while, we may need to mourn them. Then smile, hold on to them, remembering the good, letting go of the bad....easy? Not really....just good.
