Last week I was called on two separate occasions an “inspiration”. While I have never thought of myself as one and I was a bit taken aback by the comment, it also caused me to reflect a little. I have talked several times with my husband about the places I get into despite a few physical limitations. I live in one of this earth's many beautiful places and am slowly but surely trying to see more of it, but I'm still a city girl and I love Salt Lake City. While I may have (with the assistance of my family) climbed around on mountain tops I also love roaming around through the city that I have called home for quite a while now.
A quick background of the title, ten years ago after finding the right doctor I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. While I feel like I get around just fine there are days I may be fooling myself. I have been called everything from clumsy to drunk and I am slowly but surely learning to laugh it off. Make no mistake I still whine when I'm sore and even cry when it hurts but it does not stop me from stumbling out of bed each morning looking like a newborn giraffe and “getting on with it”. As for the apples part of the name??? I find myself struggling with the choice between a life of simplicity and a life of convenience and my “apples” have made so many things so simple that I may have found my happy medium.
So here it is my attempt to explore as much as possible of this beautiful place I call home. Believe me it is even prettier than the pictures they show on television and more normal than anything you will see on television 🙂
