A little over a year ago one of life’s unexpected turns found its way into my life. Just from stepping off the curb the wrong way, I have had a year worth of pain following a very extensive surgery on my ankle. Sometimes, life will throw curveballs when you least expect it. There have been a lot of lessons learned throughout my healing time. During physical therapy today, the therapist made a comment that got me thinking not just about my ankle but about life in general. I’d like to share with you one of the many lessons that have come out of the situation with my ankle and learning how to walk again.
I’ve heard the old saying, “If the shoe fits, then wear it” more times than I can count. Typically speaking, when someone says that it is usually a derogatory comment meaning that they are the brunt of a joke because of some sort of quirky or negative thing about them.
Today is officially National Lazy Mom’s Day! HA! Those words just do NOT go together in my book. You might have found a way to master being lazy and being a mom but I have yet to find a way for those two worlds to collide! If you have found a way, please shed some light for me… I’m all ears!
Last night something pretty rare happened in baseball. Rich Hill of the Dodgers pitched an amazing game. After nine innings of play, he still had a no-hitter. In the 10th, he left one pitch hanging and Josh Harrison of the Pirates hit out of the park to hand Hill with all his efforts a 1-0 loss. As I have thought about that this morning, there are three life lessons that we can see from that.
For those who don’t know me, I am one of those who usually has a daily list longer than time would allow within 24 hours. I stay up at all hours of the night to finish my list. If I don’t have something to get done, I make up stuff that I FEEL NEEDS to be done.
