Five days later

Well, I can honestly say, five days later, that breaking a bone in one’s leg is not very much fun.

I am mindful that 2000 years ago we did so much worse to Jesus.  That perspective (and the memory of those legless beggars in Malaysia) helps me understand that this is a temporary and extremely minor inconvenience.

But the walking boot is irritating.  The pain is frustrating.  And the added time for me to undertake simple tasks is patience-trying.

[Samson just tried to get up on my lap.  He knows I’m needing some love, sweet doggie.]

Good Friday is good time to help keep all of this in the right frame of mind.

My bruised ankle three days after the event.  The other side is much worse, but I can't bend things enough to take a pic.
