Today we tried something new.
It was a day of clenched nerves and deep apprehension.
I was going to get in the pool at our local YMCA, something I’d practiced for a long time ago.
Time and kids got in the way, we never felt the time was right.
A few months ago my right leg would only stay under the water with a weight on my foot. I could only make my way around the pool with the help of weights, floats, anchors….STUFF.
Today I was slowly lowering myself into the water with Peter’s help.
WALKING down the steps.
Pushing my foot straight, my knee forward.
Never easily done.
Taking a step.
Without the weights. Without the floats. Without all the assistance we thought I would need to get into the pool.
With the kids laughing, we left.
I was exhausted.
Too pooped to pop.
