I am blessed to enjoy good health and an active lifestyle. It’s a shame that sometimes unpleasant things in our lives, or in the lives of some close to us, remind us to enjoy the simple things. At some point I started moving slightly slower in the morning. I used to be able to jump out of bed, put on my shoes, and start my day with a spring in my step. I’m not so springy these days, but I’m not complaining. I try to make healthy choices for my life on so many levels. Hiking is my new exercise of choice. Geocaching creates the hiking goal. I just like the fact that I can be outside, enjoying creation, and not have to exhaust myself on the boring treadmill. I can stop and smell the roses, literally! I am healthy and happy. What more could I ask for?
