Wordless Wednesday: A boy and his book

reading time

This could be the day

Well, this could be it!

Today just might be the day I get my cast off of my arm! It’s been 5 weeks since that fateful day. The day I fell off my bike and my arm collided with the sidewalk, resulting in a scaphoid fracture in my left arm.

My husband has been so patient and awesome through it all. You’ve heard of someone being your “right-hand man”? Well, I have an amazing “left-hand man” and I am so very thankful for him and his love and care for me. He’s simply the best!

I’ve tried to carry on life as “normal”, but it seems to have caused a bit of a slow down. Showers take a little bit longer, typing is a little painful at times, and cooking seems to have taken the biggest brunt of it all. I still haven’t figured out how to open a packet of sugar for my coffee with just one hand yet!

These are just a few of the little inconveniences that will hopefully be a thing of the past soon.

Just think, this could be the day that I’ll be back to “normal” like everyone else!

However, I’m a little leery about the prospects of a cast free arm. After all the reading I have done about this type of injury, it’s quite possible I’m in for another few weeks of this.

I know…I’m not suppose to believe everything I read on the Internet, but apparently this type of fracture can be a little quirky, and can be quite difficult to heal.

Hmmmm……

So, I’m holding out hope,because well, right now, that’s about all I have! I’m hoping this has healed quite nicely, and that there won’t be any residual pain/effect of this injury.

And now I’m off to the Doctor…and hoping for the best!!!

What about you?

There are a lot of bad things in this world, but there are a lot of good things too.  I would love to hear more about the good things.

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?

This weeks theme is “3 gifts found in silence“.

Write about the 3 things you are thankful for to go with this weeks theme, (with or without pictures) – and make sure to include the link to your blog.

“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.”
~Henry VanDyke

I hope you have a wonderful “Thankful Thursday!”

Looking for a few good books

I just finished reading a really good book.  The title of the book is “The Secret Keeper” by, Kate Morton.

It’s a novel filled with mystery, suspense, and love.

The characters in the book are very well-developed by the author. Even when I wasn’t reading the book, I would often find myself thinking about them. Wondering what would happen to them next, and trying to figure out why they were doing what they were doing!

There are several twists and turns throughout the book, and the ending actually surprised me!  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I was sad to have it end.

I always have mixed emotions when I get to the end of a book. I have a sense of accomplishment because I finished it, but then I have the daunting task of searching for another good book to read.

I think this just about sums it up for me….

Start a new book

However, I won’t let this stop me for too long.  And I will find another good book to read. My love for reading is just too great to keep me away from another adventure.

So now I’m off … in search of a few good books!
