Reverb13: It's that time of year again!

So just as I did last year I'm going to Reverb at random. Not every day. Just when the mood strikes. But through the end of the year just like the last few years.

Today's word: Health

It's easy to take our health for granted. As many of you know I spent a week in the hospital (plus 2 days outpatient) for an infection. I was on the wrong antibiotic for 5 days and it was pretty horrible. So here I am.

A new month. A fresh start. FINALLY feeling like myself. Had a bad cold for a week recently too, so now I'm BACK to yoga. I'm back to enjoying life. I'm back to cooking and baking and doing laundry and "keeping house." Much to the relief of my husband, I'm sure (he was my nursemaid and helping hand--love you honey!). Sickness and in health.

Being out of the hospital and well enough to be in a dear friend's wedding meant so much to me. (shout out to the newlyweds Grey and Bri for such an amazing wedding that was creative and fun--it for me was the first time I'd felt normal in so long after being so ill and it was just a great weekend  in NH that I so needed).

Don't take health for granted. You can have the fancy cars, the multiple homes, the good friendships, and wonderful relationships, and the GREAT job. It all goes to shit if you don't have your health. I know this now. Yoga retreat scheduled for February. I started (and kept going with) writing every day while in the hospital--and I'm sticking to it--writing every single day (not in this blog, but still stretching that writing muscle).

Cheers! To good health and a fun and exciting 2014! 2013 was exhausting (just ask anyone that lives in the Boston area--ending on a good note, a happy note. I need 2014 to have more fun (go Red Sox) and less worry and bad things (terrorist attack on Boston). There's going to be daffodils blooming the entire marathon route (that runs through my town). I can't wait for 2014 to begin!


  1. Cheers to good health! I hear ya!

  2. Leah thanks for the words on health! You are so right! Glad to see yu back reverbing again this year!

  3. I know how that is - just wanting to turn the calendar already! I was in your area during the marathon. My daughter had an interview at a seminary in Boston and we were all set to go and then she got an email saying Boston was on lockdown. Luckily we were far enough away that we weren't impacted and had a great time altering our site seeing route. Plus she got accepted at Princeton's seminary so.... that's that. I am so glad you eventually found the RIGHT antibiotic. I can't imagine your ordeal. I've been having annual bouts with skin cancer, so I know how important health is, too. Big hugs to you!

    1. Julie! It means so much that you took the time to write and respond! Big hugs back!
