Learning to Walk Again…

 

It’s no small thing!  And I might say, from experience, much easier when you’re a child rather than a….well…..more advanced age.  😉  Quick update:  Since my ankle fusion revision and tendon transfer surgery in January, I’m out of the boot, back in tennis shoes, and working really hard every day to get my heel back down where it should be, and to get this rusty body to adapt to all the changes.  It’s been a long recovery with many months still to go, but I knew that going into it.  But isn’t it funny how it seems so much longer when you’re actually in it?  God is keeping me going, though.  🙂 And for that I am thankful.

Some quotes that amazingly seem to apply to other situations as well.

“If you can’t walk, be the bird.”  ~Lisa Lyons  (but I have to say, I haven’t made it off the ground yet..  haha)

“My leg hasn’t fallen off yet.”  ~Lisa Lyons  (after the “How are you doing?” question and should be said with heavy sarcasm for full effect)

“I walk slowly, but I never walk backward.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Thanks for listening….I appreciate all of my readers, and sincerely pray that you are blessed today.  Slainte, Lisa

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Song of the Day (or possibly Month)

“Takes a Little Time” Amy Grant….It takes a little time, sometime, to get your feet back on the ground….but baby, you’re not going down, you got things to think of now…so give it, give it time…

Thank you, God, for music, to get me up and moving.  Slainte, Lisa

I Think I Can, I Think I Can

Another Monday, another new week to try to be healthy.  It is constantly amazing to me how lazy I can become after one short weekend of fun.  So in order to inspire myself (and encourage you also! 🙂 ) , I have found some great quotes to motivate us both!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  – Phillippians 4:13

“I think I can, I think I can…” – The Little Engine Who Could

motivation2

“You’ll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind.”  – Irish proverb

May God fill you with amazing energy and motivation today to do whatever it is you need to do!  Slainte, Lisa
