How easy it is for me to feel stressed when life gets lifey and interferes with my plans. How easy it is to let frustration loom large and overshadow the many blessings in my life.

A few days ago I tried getting into my daughter's car while standing on a patch of ice. One foot was already in, but the other one started sliding, and before I knew it I had fallen out of the car and was lying on the ground. It was quite a shock, to say the least, but I'm very thankful that none of my bones got broken in the fall. That was easy to be grateful for.

  1. Glad you're OK, Grams!

    Now I dare not venture out
    sans helmet on my head,
    for I have a rightful doubt
    of ability to tread,
    as was an unquestioned thing,
    with agility;
    cancer had the knack to bring
    me to reality,
    to sympathize with the frail
    with whom today I stand,
    and find in this a Holy Grail
    placed in mine own hand
    that I myself may make a start
    to drink, align with God's own heart.

    1. Thanks, Andrew, and for writing me a sonnet as well. I save them all, and have quite a collection.

  2. Oh my, that is one beautiful bruise. I'm glad you're ok.

    Even the "ordinary" things of life can become blog fodder...right?

    1. Thanks, Joanne. It actually looks a lot worse than it feels. I haven't really felt any pain unless I touched it, and it seems to be much less tender now.

    1. Me too. And it was only sore when I touched it, so it really looks a whole lot worse than it actually felt.

  10. Oh Ouch!!! Glad it's not more serious than a bruise (although it looks like a painful one!) and praying that you're recovered quickly.
