Sitting This One Out

Note: I am the only one who usually posts on this blog site. But since my wife broke her ankle and is indisposed for six to eight weeks. She is now scribbling thoughts. I thought I’d share one with you. That said, my guest blogger today is my wife of almost half a century, Rickie:

My highlight this week was getting dressed and going to see an orthopedic surgeon in Waco. And, what do surgeons do? They operate. I knew that, but it didn’t matter. When the word “surgery” came out of his mouth, I must have zoned out or black out at that point. Anyone that knows me knows I am very active; work out at the gym almost every day, helping our daughter remodel her newly acquired house that she’ll call home eventually, volunteer one day a week at the Pot of Gold (a charity resale shop), and babysitting our beautiful new grandson, Myers. With this injury, I think someone was telling me I should slow down and enjoy the things and people around me more and a bit more frequently. I will have 6 to 8 weeks to think about that. I sure hope everyone has a blessed Christmas. I think I’ll get caught up reading my husband’s novels.
