In the wee hours of this morning after a night of tossing and turning I found myself silently complaining. My back is sore. My butt is sore. I wish I could walk to the toilet. I’m sick of crutches. The list could go on and on.
As a result I decided I needed a big virtual slap as a reminder that there’s a whole lot of things (albeit they are random) for which I can be thankful, like:
My feet are now so soft.. baby soft! There’s no rough skin in sight!! Apparently that’s what happens when 18-20hrs of every day is spent with them up for 3mths!
I can still kind of shave around my pin sites when I was told it would be near impossible! It may have the effect of a mangy dog BUT hey it can be done.
I get the entire bed to myself every night – although sometimes the cat sneaks in and sometime Stella does too (and I don’t mind one bit💕)
It really doesn’t matter if I am awake throughout the night and cannot manage to get back off to sleep. I make a cup of tea, eat dark chocolate and stay awake for a few hours reading (or watching the Olympics)! I am not going to work tomorrow, it’s no stress I will catchup.
I have seen the sun rise more than I have ever in my life.. It’s a really nice way to start the day (ok maybe I would prefer to be asleep!)
I am comfortable. Things were a whole lot worse only a matter of weeks ago. The pressure and swelling in my leg has been released. I can straighten my leg so much more than ever before and the pain has generally lifted. I am barely taking any medication which means I can drink wine! 🍷yahoo!
Online shopping. Is the best. I shop from the comfort of home – even from local stores – AND there is nothing quite like receiving a parcel in the mail!
Finally, my leg is getting REALLY long! I’ve honestly just noticed how long it has got again. Yesterday I took a photo of my legs and I was surprised! I am by no means finished the lengthening, a little while to go yet.. but hey I’m getting close.
Ok. That was not so hard after all.
There is so much to be thankful for once we scratch the surface.🙏
