Have had a really good week this week. I am gaining strength in my legs hips and upper body. This means I can DO more.
Highlights of the week have been walking Star and Barney one at a time up my garden path and up to the first lamp post in our back lane.
Both dogs did really well and it is a great exercise for loose lead walking. Just that short distance helped my confidence with what I can do physically ~ just having the lead in my hand gave me confidence and brought me one step nearer to being able to take my boys out for a proper walk.......lamp post by lamp post we will get there.
Yesterday I loaded Star and Barney into my beloved Myrtle and we drove out to the moors with my best friend Audrey and her husband Chris. They drove out with their two dogs Tia a cocker spaniel and Libby a lurcher. We went out to a place called Delphi Bridge.
For the first time in five months I was able to WALK without crutches to the river and throw sticks in the river for the dogs..just to be part of this makes my heart sing and I gave thanks to the Universe.
No I haven't got any photos as I was too busy having fun with my boys!!!
The next breakthrough happened this morning when I was able to clean my house upstairs and downstairs in one go on the same day......something I have not been able to do for five months.
Another gift of this journey is seeing and experiencing all these little things which are big things and giving thanks because I truly appreciate what it means to be able to do these things. It goes beyond words but it means so much and I can begin to plan my return to work.. I can realistically return to my study for my dog behaviour course. It feels like sunshine after the rain.....long may it continue.
