Dreaming Again!

One year ago today, Jan.3, 2015 my world came crashing down.
A wonderful day on the mountains with the grands
and an unexpected knee injury that left me crippled.
I was given absolutely no hope,
not even a second opinion was granted to me.

So I started my own journey.
Some excellent advice from friends in the medical field,
gave me the inner strength and encouragement that I needed.

With the snowfall that we've had this winter,
my body aches and longs to put those skis on again.

"Your Dream doesn't have an expiration date.
Take a deep breath and try again."

It's little ones like Ivy that cheered me on...
It was inborn that I needed to be mobile to play with my
grandchildren again. 

A little bit of surgery and a strong rehab program,
put the smile back on my face, 
and gave me the courage to work hard at my weekly goals.
Boys, I will be back...
but not this year....
And I have decided to quit racing you.
Tara, I'm so happy that my ski boots fit you.
It's fun watching you progress.

But I know that Ivy will need my help,
and I will start all over again only maneuvering slower.

There were many special people who offered prayer and HOPE!
Thank you to all of you.

I told you I'd be back!

Happy New Year's to All of You!
