I finally got the word from my doctor to start putting weight on my left foot. S-l-o-w-l-y I am able to stand for a few minutes at a time and over the next few weeks can work up to 10-20 minutes at a time, a few times a day. Walking unassisted is still a ways off. Who would have thought a little trip over the garden hose could cause so much misery!
So, the first thing I did was roll myself over to the kitchen window, stood up (I feel so tall!) and stretched and looked outside. Obviously I have missed Summer and Fall is in full swing with all of its glorious colours.
Then I noticed the dirty kitchen window and felt a little discouraged. (I like a clean home).
Then I noticed all the leaves that are starting to fall to the ground and felt a little more discouraged. (I like a picked up yard).
Then I smiled and did the happy dance in my head as I remembered I won't be the one who has to rake those leaves or wash those windows. Always looking for a silver lining here.
