I am not a fan of my back hurting and “going out.” That feeling of helplessness and overwhelm by pain is the worst. Luckily Clover is four and a half and is much more self sufficient than ever. I make our family meals and keep our routine as consistent as possible. Today we walked to the garden-she carried my back pack with just the essentials and we headed out. The fresh air and sunshine was just what I needed. I found benches warmed by the sun and got comfortable. A little meditation and quiet did wonders for my spirit and I returned feeling much improved.
