These are my new accessories. Nice, huh? Not really but I'm learning they are necessary. About 15 years ago, I had reconstruction surgery on my ACL. Recently I was running on a treadmill that I had FINALLY talked my husband into buying for me and I re injured my knee. I think it's the ACL again and I go for an MRI this week to see.
I have been...ah let's just call it...stubborn for the last week. Trying to continue to do what I normally do. That's just not possible without being in a great deal of pain. Soooo it is time to let others help me.
My husband cancelled his trip for work this week so he can help me. He's a great guy & I sure do love him. He offered to do all of the things I normally do in order to help me rest my knee. Instead of trying to be super-woman, I am going to humbly accept his offer. This is hard for me to do. I feel bad for him having to work all day AND come home and do all things at home too. He knows I'm in pain and he wants to help. Did I mention that I love him?
A neighbor offered her help if I need anything. I asked her to watch Rori while I get my MRI. Not only is she doing that, she's also making dinner for us that night. I'm so thankful for friends.
I have been walking on my knee without crutches and yesterday put the ask out on facebook to borrow a pair of crutches. My daughter's friend (along with many others) offered a pair she had at her house. I'm thankful for my daughter's awesome friends.
It's great to be a person who enjoys doing stuff for others (like me). It's humbling to be on the receiving end. I'm surrounded by awesome people and I am SO THANKFUL for them.
