Anneliese is waiting for me.
But what about on days like the last couple of weeks when she was away and I am on my own? Well I am still walking!! You see I walk because I have to! People often comment on the fact that after so many years we are still walking but the reality is that because of my issues with chronic pain and what could be debilitating arthritis, I know that I have to keep walking.
I remember hearing Joni Earickson Tada speaking about how she sings because she has to! Because it is the only way to focus in the midst of the pain and the challenges that she faces every day as a quadriplegic.
In a similar way I too walk because I have to, because if I don't keep moving I soon won't be able to move at all. And so, it is a choice I make every day. Will I walk today even though I have to walk alone?
