VELCRO

What would we do in our world today without Velcro and what does that have to do with my post today? Well, there is a vast amount of Velcro on the ankle braces I am wearing since I sprained BOTH of my ankles last Sunday! I tripped down 3 stairs...OH BROTHER! However, I have been laying around, eating chocolates, watching HGTV, TCM and AMC movies....doing hand work and crocheting. Oh the life! I finally made my husband go get me a wheelchair so I could get around the house. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day -Saints partners with other world charities and distributes wheelchairs around the world. I have a greater appreciation for how that changes lives, giving people freedom and mobility....the idea of being bed ridden is so awful.

However, I am on the mend and have shed the wheelchair. I am now on crutches since I can put weight on my right foot......I am making steady progress! Good thing I don't have anything on my calendar for the next two weeks! Note to self: Be careful, act your age, go slower down stairs and hold onto the hand railing! My feelings on the whole issue? Quoting Charlie Brown; "GOOD GRIEF!"
