Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
Made a new non-church friend in the pool today-- Purple Pat. Similar public school leadership experiences, yay! Spirituality a good fit too. We are two of the 6-7 women coaching an employee there on Life After Abuse, and found ourselves coming from he same page so much that we just had to get acquainted.
My Californy fam is now into the routine of my calling my mom each week, ending a long estrangement caused by toxicity. We talked today about the exercise videos #1 son is bringing to do with her, so she can do assigned exercises in her preferred environment. It was extra fun that sis connected us while I was towel-wrapped after 2 hours of pooltime, in the locker room, which lent a little more credibility to the videos I was describing to mom! And she was able to recall a silly play-exercise we used to do with our fingers, to understand how really BASIC the videos are. She wants her strength back and I have the tools right here.
It so neat to be able to put to her service the tools I learned from helping to care for Hardi's dad as well as our older parishioners.
More hospital testing for sis tomorrow-- prayers welcome.
