一路上其實心裡一直在默默地禱告。直到了目的地，也就是這次要爬的 Mount Rubidoux。這地方有點遠，但選這裡也是因為它可以帶輪椅上去。當大家集合再一起的時候，心裡還是有點小緊張，但人都到了只能往前走。剛開始有一個很陡的斜坡，我那時候只想著，我要突破自己，我可以。其實整個爬山過程，我都有種自我催眠的概念，一直在心裡跟自己說我可以。但我很感謝弟兄姊妹的陪伴，當我中間走不動的時候，他們給我鼓勵，他們幫我推輪椅，推我倒比較平地的地方，再讓我自己走一走。這次的爬山，一路上若不是有他們的陪伴，支持，鼓勵，還有幫助，我不可能爬到山上的！當然整個過程還有很多路人，也都陸續會跟我說 Good Job，或是 You are great 的鼓勵。真的很感動！

These anti-inflammatory drinks are an easy, delicious, and natural way to fight inflammation. Not only are they packed with antioxidants and nutrients, but they come in an array of vibrant colors and flavors that will give your immune system the boost it needs. From teas (including turmeric tea and elderberry tea), to smoothies (blueberry smoothie, turmeric smoothie, and carrot beet smoothie), juices (green juice), and tonics (jamu and ginger shot!), there’s something for everyone. I promise you’ll love these immune-boosting drinks, and not only do they taste great, but they make you feel great! Who doesn’t love that? Enjoy these drinks along with my previously recommended anti-inflammatory foods as part of a healthy diet. Create a foundation of health and wellness for your body!
