I stood looking up to the sky and saw the bright sun. I smiled and took a picture. I breathed in the cool breeze and thanked God for allowing me to be outside. I leaned against the building post and listened to music. It was quiet outside, not many people around except for the construction workers down the block. I didn't care, I was enjoying the moment. I stayed there for a while and took a short walk to the store. I have to get used to walking on concrete ground again, my hip and leg are still weak. I definitely need the cane. Soon I won't need it, but for now I don't mind. I'm just happy to be walking again. The things we take for granted. Something as simple as walking is a blessing. There are many who can't walk, there are many of us who have to adapt to it again. Reality definitely hits home.
For me, I can only smile.
