Lois sent me this verse today:
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day . . . 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Hmmm . . . I suppose wasting away describes me—sort of—but I wish that it referred to body fat.
Yesterday, I was just tired of walking slowly with a walker. . . but then a friend came to visit and I gave myself a bunch of reminders about how this is just a hiccup in life—no big deal—it will soon end. And my sister, Lou, came. . .and I finished one of Judy’s books that I just found out is the first of a three book series, oh, dear. I discovered that I wasn’t so tired anymore and that life is good again.
Today, I am excited! I get to start Physical Therapy. I am expecting small miracles from this—mainly a release from walker dependence. PT means that I get to become proactive instead of just sit in this wait, wait, wait stage for the bone to begin mending. Yay! I wonder if anyone else gets this excited about PT?
