A couple of weeks ago, I was talking with a friend about the game “Pickleball”. It seems to be gaining popularity – especially with people in their 40’s and older. I thought it sounded like fun and perhaps it would be something I should learn. This week at the Parkinson’s support group, it was announced that they were starting pickleball. It was open to everyone in the group, it would include lessons on how to play, and it was free. I was all over that. I went to the community center this evening and met up with the small group that was there. It was made up of parkinsonians and caregivers alike. One of the couples had been playing for a while and they brought in the instructor. Everyone was very nice and very patient. The game was fun and pretty easy. It felt great to learn something new, to move and exercise, and to meet new people. All the things I like to do. Then I joined another group of friends for dinner and laughed and laughed. Another thing I like to do.
I Found God today spending some time spending a little “me” time.
