Brain Injury Recovery: Being with Family – (Support System)
This is an area that is often not mentioned and is a vital part of brain injury recovery. I do not believe that if I hadn’t had the love and support of friends, colleagues and my family that I would have experienced the same recovery. In the past month, I was able to see my friend of 44 years, Kathy Murdock. Kathy and I went to Ohio State University together. She is a public and school librarian and also an editor of my latest novel, “Timeless”. During Kathy’s visit in mid-July, we enjoyed a day of whale watching. For the past two weeks, I was on vacation with my sons and my new daughter-in-law. This is her first trip to the U.S. and it is fun teaching her about new foods, birds, and language expressions. She was thrilled at seeing a Lobster and then eating it too! The joy of being with my friend, children and brother with his wife was heart warming and is what the doctor recommends; time off to feel the joy, inner peace and watch the clouds.
For every season there is a time…. a time for work…and a time to just enjoy!
