Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

Photo Challenge for this week: Resolved. I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. But this is a very appropriate theme for me right now, for this time and place. I’ve been feeling really beaten down by the various challenges thrown at our family; they come from various sources but undeniably the medical challenges have taken the most out of me. I’ve hit the wall.

I need to find some new resolve to pick myself back up, put myself back together even if just a little. These issues aren’t going anywhere. My kids need me. Just as important: *I NEED ME.* I need myself  functional, to feel more clear, to feel more capable.

I need to be resolved to face certain medical issues more clearly.
I need more resolution to push back against cystic fibrosis and the other challenges facing us.
I need to continue to learn from my daughter and her amazing spirit, the resolve that still comes naturally to her, that illness and adversity has not beaten out of her.

Can you see that spirit? That resolve? I can. She is my hero.

We were getting ready for our Great Strides walk last year here- the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. Participating in this event brings me such a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment, knowing I am doing something concrete to help the CF community. This is part of my resolve as well… to again be part of this. And look at my Empress… the joy and strength emanating from her here.
