Back to Life

Back to Life, Back to Reality - anyone remember that chorus . . . ?

My life is back to "normal" rhythms as my husband's heart is back to normal rhythms.

After getting out of the hospital, my husband and I celebrated with a leisurely, doctor-approved bike ride for three miles. That's like a super leisurely stroll down the block for my husband who normally rides 12-30 miles a day at high speeds.

After that in the later afternoon, I was a "dock mom" for my daughter and another new canoeist as they struggled to balance in racing canoes, learn j-strokes and c-strokes, and just get around the dock while the racing team (with my kayaking daughter) were out in the harbor doing a workout that focused on technique at partial speed.

After 48 hours of stress and concern, everything just slipped back into regular life and reality, and I feel so thankful for "regular" and "normal."

I just wanted to stop here and say . . .

THANKS! Thank you for all your encouragement in writing and life!

And here's a view from a sun-break on the dock yesterday:

My daughter canoeing with two kayakers coming in behind her at the end of practice.
Hope that "normal" life is treating you with sun breaks and moments of fresh air!
Praise God for Life!

Amen! God is good. We don't appreciate normal until things aren't normal.

So glad to hear your hubby is better and home again! Whew! I went through something similar in 2009--turned out to be an electrolyte imbalance. Hubs had to decaffeinate and always hydrate before exercise.

The experience definitely helps you appreciate boring and normal, but also be aware of God's care in both the emergency and routine.

It's funny how normal is boring until you don't have it anymore. Congratulations on getting your normal back!

Aw, sorry to hear your husband had been in the hospital, but that's great how his heart is doing better now!
