There must be something in the water or maybe it’s a seasonal thing. But lately I have heard from more friends and family who are getting sick or injured. My yoga instructor took a tumble and injured her knee and shoulder, my beautiful and very active mother discovered she has several knee problems/injuries and may not be able to exercise the way she used to, a dear friend was in and out of the hospital for months due to a car accident and the resulting surgeries, a sweet and beautiful aunt found out she has cancer, another friend has two brain tumors, and two friends are walking around with air boots on due to foot/ankle injuries, just to name a few!
But what amazes me about all these beautiful women it their resilience. Some of these things are minor and some are much more serious, but I am amazed at how these women push on. They aren’t letting these injuries and illnesses hold them back. It’s almost as if some of them have decided: “I am bigger than YOU, illness, and I will beat you. Don’t you get in my way!”
To all these amazing, beautiful women in my life my heart goes out to you; I salute you; I gain strength from you; and give strength to you. This is my tribute to you.
Stay amazing, stay strong, you are an inspiration, you are beautiful.
