The Little Things

21 Mar

The most frequent remark I hear from those who visit is “you don’t look as bad as I thought you would.” Thanks! (I think.)

Many have commented they thought I would be in two huge casts with posts holding my arms in the air. I’m not quite in that place … at least not today. I have a hard cast on my left arm and a pretty stout brace on the right. Neither is terribly comfortable. Both are helping me heal. But you cannot imagine the little things you cannot do because of them!

Does your face ever itch? Mine does. Especially while I was on pain medicine. But I cannot REACH my face. Ergo, I cannot brush my teeth. Wash my face. Shave. Hold a phone to my ear. Brush my hair. Feed myself. The list goes on and on, but I think you get my direction.

And, that is just ONE area of discussion … The bottom line is, there are little things you are able to do everyday that some cannot do. SOME have never been able and never will … Don’t take life for granted!!

Appreciate the little things! And have a great day!!!!
