Maddening and Miraculous

fun palm lights wmThe last time I posted about the unbearable heat at Christmas in Florida, I never dreamed I’d be living in the north two years later. Even though I wanted to move, I didn’t think it would actually happen.

Another Break

4tflwrs6 (449x800) wmI didn’t get a blog scheduled for this week, so I thought I’d post an update on an earlier post.

Remember A Tale about Feet and then the One Gimp, Two Gimp story? Well apparently, feet injuries are contagious in our home. I’d advice anyone to get a vaccine before they visit us.

One Gimp, Two Gimp 1

Gotta watch that last step, Mom.

It happened two weeks after our cross country move. I sauntered down the stairs in our new place and stopped on the last step to give my hubby, Gary, a hug. Shortly after, we parted to go in different directions.

Update Central

path-stream-bench (575x600) wmI’ve contemplated whether or not to share updates about my husband’s injury. I mean, this blog was not intended to be all about a recovery, but rather, about life’s lessons, studying human behavior, then learning and growing from it all. Why would people want to read about a man’s two broken feet?

The more I contemplated, the more I realized that the path we are on has lots of lessons to share. With each new day in this crisis, we discover something new about ourselves. For example, we should never sell ourselves short. There are so many things I thought I couldn’t do before this crisis, but now I’m doing them. This isn’t just a lesson for me, but I share it for all. There is a spirit of strength inside all of us.

But I digress, because this blog post is the latest update and lesson on our path.

I know I shared this particular theme before, but it’s always a good reminder. Today’s lesson … gratitude. Let me show you why. Below is a ‘before’ photo.

Coping with an Injury

I’m slowly returning from a blogging hiatus after my husband’s accident. We’re still dealing with things, but learning to manage it a bit better. I can’t say for sure, but I hope to post a blog once a week now, plus another for the wisdom quotes I share. I would also like to read more of your blogs when I can. I may not have as much time to comment, but I’ll let you know I read with a ‘like.’ I really do read, I’m not one of those bloggers. 😉
