Thank you.

I appreciate your care and prayers.

A friend came over and spent the night last night and that was very comforting. I didn't get much sleep though. My knees hurt so bad.

Here is what happened: I was running along a path in the park. Coming in the opposite direction was a large group of runners. I was concentrating on staying out of their way and wasn't looking down. There was a large crack in the sidewalk that I never even saw - and the next thing I knew, I came down with all my considerable weight on my knees and my hands - which barely had time to come up and protect my face. I nearly fell on my face. It still knocked the sense out of me and spent yesterday feeling pretty crazy.

I went to church last night and just cried and cried. Afterwards I felt a lot better. And then my friend came over, we watched a movie and had a "sleep-over."

The people who surround us really have the ability to change our reality. I know we say in AA all the time "I don't have that kind of power." Whatever kind of power that is. I know that my friend had the power to change my day yesterday - it turned a scary and menacing kind of day into a day when I knew I was loved and cared for.

Let's love and care for each other today... we have the ability to change another's day just by doing that.

Sending Ice packs your way along with the prayers. Feel, deal, heal. All part of the equation, no?
Get better and stay optimistic. It is worth it. Love you, your little sherpette.

I'm glad that your friend came over. I hope that your knees will feel better and won't be so stiff. It might be good to take it easy for a bit until you're not sore anymore.
