Feel the Love

One of the "joys" of healing is that you cannot drive. This is supposed to give you time to relax and let your body repair itself after it has been torn to shreds inside. This would be nice and refreshing if I were on a beach in Florida getting complimentary massages. Lucky for me however, I am in my parents house (love you mom and dad) outside of Boston where the average temperature the past few days has been in the low 40's. You know you are a New Englander when on days like today (it was almost 60!) you are walking outside in snow boots and a t-shirt. But back to the point, this aint no beach. 

I have bought myself many things to do during this time in which I am incased in the house. Coloring books, movies, art projects, books. But hello people there are only so many mermaids one can color in a week. I have been overly grateful for the friends who have come to my rescue over that past two days and filled my brain with intellectual matter. A.K.A getting our nails done and watching What not to Wear. Your doctors will tell you it is important to have a good support system and that is so incredibly true. Without my family being here everyday and my friends coming to visit I would be the most depressed couch potato in this town. Maybe even the state. I wonder if that is something I could call the Guinness Book of World Records about. 

Anyway, I wanted to give a little shout out to my mom, dad, and brother who have been attempting to hide dinner from me all week. They have made me feel like a loved infant (I am currently eating baby food, really its not that bad) and a humbled old woman who can't even lift her laundry basket up the stairs. I have always known that a love of a family is one of the most important things you can have in life and having so many of my aunts and cousins and grandparents visit and reaching out just confirms how lucky I am. Without them, my boyfriend, and my three main ladies who lovingly lie to me buy telling me "you look skinnier already!" I would never make it through this process. 

I truly love and am grateful for you all.
