This is part of a month long series on depression...
 

Abby and I were on the deck at Karen and Phill's lake.

"Will you teach me to paddle board, Abby?" I asked.

 Ben, Abby, Jack, Gino. In front...the kayak and paddle board!

Dad had gotten us a paddle board to have at the lake because everyone had so much fun with one in Okoboji. Everyone except me. I did not try it, of course. I don't like risk. Or things that tip.

After being in the hospital, I developed a sort of "Why not?" attitude. Abby did teach me to paddle board, and it was not as tippy as I expected.

It is so nice to be able to paddle to the middle of the lake and just watch the birds and the sky and the lake. Or to paddle around the lake until I am completely exhausted. I dunno why, or why exactly I tried, but it is helping.

Thank you Dad.

Thank you Abby.

Thank you Karen and Phill for making your gorgeous place our gorgeous place.

It has been so healing.
