Welcome from my blog at marensgarden.com. Life has changed in many ways, it seemed appropriate to start a new blog moving forward from now. Marensgarden focused on my lack of health and my son's as well. I'm back on my feet and life keeps on getting better. There is a whole world out there of things I want to see and do. This will be my record of "Everything After" the whole ordeal of being bed bound for 4 years.
I have some not-so-good news to start this blog with. We had a robbery in our home last week while we slept. They came in through the basement window and stole a lot of electronics. There were several tender mercies though. They didn't take the shared drive that has all of my pictures and data on it. We've been meaning to back that up, but hadn't gotten around to it yet (that has suddenly moved to the top of the list). They didn't take our camera or any of the things that are irreplaceable and mean a lot to us. We are all fine. That's the greatest blessing of all. All that was taken was stuff (and a bit of peace of mind).
But, still, when we think of how our lives were a year ago compared to now.......things are great and just getting better. We have insurance and are taking this opportunity to look at what we really need and to begin to declutter our home. I can stand and walk and do all of the mundane chores that used to be impossible for me. I LOVE it. I love being an active mom and taking a larger role in my son's life. I love being an equal partner with my husband. I can keep house and cook now so he is freed from a lot of what he has had to do in the past. And I am loving all that I can do.
I hope you'll come back and visit me often. Comments are always appreciated.
