The road to recovery

My knee is still recovering from my fall. It has been three weeks since I fell, and I have another 3 weeks until my knee should be more functional. I wish that I could say that it has improved at lot, but it's still quite tender. I am elevating it like the doctor told me to do. I have an appointment for physical therapy at the end of this month. I spend most of the days in my recliner. I read scriptures, browse Pinterest, help Anna with homeschooling classes, and try to not feel guilty for all of the appointments that I am rescheduling. We recently got a laptop to help with Anna's homeschooling and I plan to try my hand at doing some family history work. 

I have been very blessed to have received such daily love and service from my sweet husband, Tyler. He is so good to me. My children are also very helpful. Friends from church have helped in substituting for my piano calling at church and others have run errands for me. Tyler has picked up the weekly grocery runs and hasn't complained one time. I am beginning to see this recovery as a gift to me. It has caused me to slow down and focus on what is most important. And for that, I am grateful.

It is so hard to allow others to bless and take care of us, but when we don't we are preventing them from following God's calling to care for each other. As hard as it is, this is a wonderful time to allow others to serve you and to count your many blessings with family, friends and church. Praying for quick healing and a restful spirit!
