"RECOVERY: A return to a normal state of health, mind or strength."
the Oxford Dictionary
The air was chilly, and the trails a bit damp
but the leaves showed how lovely it is to let dead things go.
And both the running and the conversation felt free and easy....no longer forced.
And the ache that once lived in my chest from trying to bulldoze through things not meant for me has given up; turned around and walked away.
The scars on my knee are fading, and my ankle supports my lighter weight.
Bravely starting to pick up the pace, taking more chances, jumping over hurdles....... I understand that life gave me the break I needed.
Smiling, I know I'm fully recovered.
