The thoughtful notes and calls do not go unnoticed, although they may take a bit to respond to, and you may wonder what I have been doing with my time. Shouldn’t a quick response be easy?
Hit the deck hard, and then try to think. Better yet, I don’t reccomend that in the least. Needless to say, I have collected these notes and calls and read them , and reread them when I am feeling low, or just in need of a little pick up. I am not allowed much coffee during this rehab, so I will take whatever extra jolt I can get. I am learning the caffeine of human kindness for the soul is much more effective then the caffeine for the jitters. Although I still appreciate and treasure my single cup of coffee a day.
Speaking of coffee though, Brian sent me some amazing coffee from the DoubleShot Coffee Company in Tulsa, OK, and I would highly recommend this! I have been thoroughly enjoying it!
Thank you for that. Thank you for the notes and calls.
One of my favorite thoughts from these is:
This time to sit is not wasteful, but in its own way, a gift.
I have pondered this statement for quite some time now. Could it be true? Maybe. I am still slow moving, and haven’t been able to be that productive yet. My brain isn’t functioning as efficient as it once did, and I tend to go into a daze staring out the window thinking of all the things I would rather be doing. I don’t want to sit here. I don’t want to rest. Rest is for the weak. Yet, I find myself with no other option but to sit.
Is it a gift? I will let you know when I come up with the answer.
For now, I am contemplating discovering new hobbies. Should I knit? Cross-stitch? Or maybe I should start making jewelry? There is a whole world out there that is going under discovered by me right now. There is only so much sight-seeing I can do from behind this computer screen. However, I am not wasting this time, I will turn into into a gift. A gift of relaxation, if I can stand it. A gift of self-discovery. A gift of thought and prayer. I will not waste this time, but I will look forward to the future. A future where I will be stronger and more motivated than ever (which is scary thought in itself). Each day we have on this earth is a gift. Yes, a gift. Even if we are stuck in bed, it is still a gift to be here.
