walking takes no skill….

but sometimes,  you take a spill…… I have been very fortunate to have been blessed with a darn healthy body. Walking is something most people can do. It is something most of us don’t even think about. A few weeks ago, I was out walking my dog and I twisted my ankle. I don’t know if my dog jerked me or if I just did something goofy and I wasn’t hardly even moving at the time. Anyway, it hurt! I knew I needed to sit down. It improved about 5 minutes later and I was able to make it home without too much irritation. I then realized I had some weeds to pick and so proceeded to weed for an hour. When I went to bed, I realized my ankle hurt. Oh yeah, I hurt it a few hours ago and forgot as I tended to things. My daughter who runs track told me to ice it. Um… that didn’t feel good so I couldn’t take much of it. It was swollen, but no discoloration. I obsessed all night over whether I’d be mobile in the morning. Luckily, it was worse off resting in bed and I was able to resume my activities the next day. It’s still not 100% a few weeks later, but it makes you think. What if I’m going to be down? What will I do? There are so many simple blessings that many of us don’t even think about day to day.
