Just take the first step.....


I cannot even remember
when it was the last time
I was in the supermarket
The day before yesterday
I WAS there 
With my daugther
and I could see and choose 
for myself .


And yesterday 
I walked outside 
with my fysio
To the end of the street 
and back 

That is my homework
for this week 
Walk outside EACH day .
I have asked some help
for the next days
to friends and neighbours
and every-one
who comes and visit me
that helps me 
because it has also been
so long since I walked outside.

Today I wondered
about my new future
and than I found the quote
from Martin Luther King :

You don't
have to
see the whole
just take
the first

  1. Fijn dat je weer buiten bent geweest Francis. Je had geen mooiere dag ervoor kunnen kiezen. Prachtige quote....zo is het maar net!

    Goed om te horen dat je geniet van je nieuwe vrijheid :-)!

    Madelief x

  2. Glad to hear you are able to enjoy the pleasures of food shopping again-I love it!

  3. Francis,
    I'm so glad you're taking walks outside. I have been walking with my wonderful son every week, but then I caught a bug and had to stop for awhile, but anxious to get back to it soon. It makes all the difference in the world. The sun is shining here today, and I can see the sun shining in your heart lately.


  4. Dr. King ALWAYS knew what to say, at the right time. I am so pleased that you have both hips replaced, that you are taking those steps, because this is quite the life lesson for all of us. You have the gift of writing all about it.

    Missing you so much, Francis! Thank you for the pin!

  5. Believe me, if I could afford a plane ticket, I would be there walking with you.

    One step at a time my friend and soon you will be running!

  6. Hi just found your lovely blog, that's great to hear that everyone is come around to help you, enjoy your walks.
