Currie's Gratitude 23 August 2014

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.    [Days of Healing, Days of Joy by Earnie Larsen and Carol Larsen Hegarty]

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

OUCH! Sending you lots of kisses for those BOO BOO'S cause I know they have to be hurting even more today. I am thankful that at least the first part of your walk was enjoyable and renewed your spirit as well as the body. Seems like life is always tripping us up somewhere along the way. Sending STRENGTH my friend as it appears you need it most right now.

If you need a cane or walker for confidence--keep walking! It's good for your soul--and Gracie's soul. Start out keeping it closer to home if you have to. Sorry for the fall. I know you'll give yourself a chance to heal up a bit before you go out wandering again...but keep wandering. *hugs*
