To reach out to another, if we have known frequent rejection, is to act courageously in spite of an uncertain outcome. To stand firm in a decision, if we have always given in and given up, is to back our faith in a most daring and courageous way.

Funny, I realised just Now that I would let you know how our walk went yesterday. It was such a “big deal” for me. I hadn’t remembered writing that yesterday.
It was lovely. Cool. Even a touch of morning briskness. I was HAPPY as I’m missing walking so very much.
And then I was hitting pavement. Don’t know that I tripped, I was just falling hard and fast. I’ve never had such a sore hand. And shoulder. Back. Knee.
I didn’t know what to DO but I knew that I did know, if that makes sense. I called the Nurse Line at my insurance and found a sensible nurse to run the plays for me. Went to urgent care, x-ray, bandaged finger, and home again.
A long and confusing day and night and day again. I used to fall. Used to need a wheelchair. Walker. Cane.
Now I feel unsure of myself. And I don’t like that.
I love you, Currie
