Winter Greys or Grace?
My back decided to go out on Saturday at work while wiping milk on the floor. It was one more layer of injury, stress, and I spent the weekend on ice and heat, too locked up to walk across a room. Monday I woke to go to the work clinic and after struggling down into the car (if you’ve ever had a bad back you know what struggle I am talking about) the car would not turn over. I called Mike, got the spare car key and promptly got stuck in deep snow at the end of the driveway. I barely made the appointment and was told re-evaluation in two weeks and no work.
Today is Wednesday and I have had two chiro visits and one physical therapy session. I can move for short periods of time. I am feeling blessed. I took 6 photos. Smiled. And for the heck of it tried to turn my car over, and with arguments, it did. I hope the HEET runs through well enough to make it feel better. I guess we both needed TLC.
Tomorrow, I am doing some office work at a group home–not my position but hopefully it will offer a bit of income. And I have picked up 3 sub-teaching days late next week. My goal is to start on the Etsy Store, pronto.
So am I in the Winter Greys? Or am I Graced? Resilient. Hopeful. And concentrating on Balance, Beauty and Breathe! I guess in spite of it all I am graced. Things could be worse and I am grateful for today.
