The last three week's Brenda and I have made a new effort to get up earlier so we can get our exercise in before it gets too hot. The first week was brutal. Our lifestyle had developed into an "I can't hardly get up in the morning" feeling. We went from 6 a.m. to 5:30 am and now something has happened. I am sleeping deeper and waking up refreshed. I have almost two weeks worth of 3-4 four mile jogs with physical therapy exercise before and after. My body, including my hair is slowly but surely recovering from Lymphoma, the R-CHOP chemotherapy, four compression fractures and grog land. (This week two friends had to tug on my hair to settle their minds that this bush on my head wasn't fake.) The last few morning's I have awakened @ 5a feeling refreshed. Also found a little more time for prayer and devotions. My Sunday morning routine is to go early to the church and make sure the AC is working, etc. and do a quick prayer for God's blessings. (It's next door, so it isn't too big a deal). I felt a bounce in my step and didn't stumble from a no caffeine klutziness I was experiencing just a month ago.
Attended a Vienna Tyson's Chamber of commerce leadership seminar by an Action coach on Friday. (Thank you David) Also have begun reading and listening to the material for a new class on my path to a Master's. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, maritally something's changed.
Thanks be to God, something has changed for the better.
