Out of the four adults in this house, three of us suffered some recent injuries.
One of us fell and cracked her head on the pavement, causing a concussion and some major body pains.
One of us burned his arm during welding class.
And one of us had a benign tumor in her back and had to get it removed.
The fourth adult in the house has Parkinsons, so we’re all doing bad.
Thanks to some rough seas, I fell behind on school work, so much so that one of my professors emailed me about it. Oops.
Sometimes stuff happens in your life and you fall short. This happens. The question becomes, do you stay at the foot of the tree or do you start climbing again? I fell behind because of stress, taking care of house stuff, and caring for some stitches in my back, but I know I can work hard and catch up. And I will.
We can’t always control if we fall out of the tree, but we can control if we stay out of it.
P.S. I’m fine, and healed for the most part. So is everyone else.
