Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away at us all but the things that cannot be torn so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~ Arthur Golden
I’m posting my wisdom quote planned for today, but seeing that some adversity has come up in my life, I thought I’d add a brief bit more.
Yesterday, Thursday, I received a call from my husband who said he fell at work. He thought he sprained his ankle and his coworkers were taking him to the hospital near his work to get x-rayed. He needed me to pick him up and take him home.
I drove the 20 miles to the hospital, and found him in horrifically bad shape. To make this brief, he didn’t have a sprained ankle. He fell off a mezzanine at work and landed on his feet. They both promptly shattered to pieces. He has a high pain tolerance for sure, but I know he’s still suffering.
We’ll get through this eventually, and frankly, we’re grateful it wasn’t a spine or head injury. Perhaps I will have some learning experiences to share after I introspect with this one.
I hope to still post the last episode of Mystical Tours on Monday. I have a Surface and it works great with the hospital WiFi.
I’ll share more of what I learned from this experience one day.
