Through it all, my Shyla and I wandered the forest together each morning, helping me find my inner peace despite the feeling that life was out of my control.
So, I wouldn't say that it's been an easy month. Yet, when I look back at it, I remember the beauty most of all.
I moved more slowly than usual so I could soak it up.
But, being allowed gradually return to my mountain biking passion is beautiful!!!!!! I've started taking rides on the road, with both hands on the handlebars, and it feels great, even if my shoulder gets tired easily!
Another beautiful thing this month has been to see R get stronger after his major elbow dysplasia surgery a couple of months ago. He's now running on leash every day with the Runner, and he can be off-leash a little bit during his evening hikes with me and Shyla. Yay!
