Daily 5 - Day 198

Today's Daily 5:
  1. This is probably going to sound strange to some of you, but the absolute highlight of my day was getting behind the wheel of my grandma's truck a little while ago, and driving it from her house to my apartment.  But not because I was driving her truck.  It's because I drove, at night, for the first time since my accident.  And I was alone while doing it.  And it was pretty much as panickyn as I'd been thinking it might be.  And I drove all the side streets to make it home.  But I'm really proud of myself for managing to do that tonight.
  2. Feeling actually really good about how this move is coming together.
  3. So grateful for being allowed to take the afternoon off and the time it allowed me tonight to just rest.
  4. Thankful for the family members who have been so helpful in making this move smooth.
  5. Thinking about the fact that this is the last night in this apartment, and grateful for the seven months we lived here.  After two really brutal years, the last seven months in this place have been a time where I've finally seen healing begin to happen, and for that time I'm so incredibly grateful.
(Daily 5 will hopefully be back tomorrow night if all goes smoothly with the phone company moving the internet.  If not, well, it'll be back once I get the internet stuff sorted out.)
