I haven’t been skiing in 20 years…20 years!!! I loved skiing when I was younger and my family always went at least once, but sometimes multiple times, a year. So why haven’t I been skiing in 20 years? Well, lots of reasons I guess, but none of them good enough to keep me from doing something I enjoyed…One of the many lessons learned from the deaths of Ellis, my husband of 21 years, and my new love, B, is that we are not guaranteed our health, or even our next breath, and so we should live life to the fullest today. So, here I am, 45 years old, with a completely different center of gravity (you ladies who have had children understand what I’m saying!) re-learning how to ski and having a blast with my kids! I can’t help but imagine that the two men I’ve loved are looking down on us and smiling. Why haven’t I taken them skiing before today? I have no idea, and feeling guilt for that is not constructive, but we can enjoy today!
