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.
