Small Mercies

And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. –Doctrine and Covenants 89:20

This is how my weekends feel.

Saturdays (and Fridays) are very much a flat our run most of the time where I must movemovemove and not be weary and Sunday I must walksoslowly and not faint.

It is a blessing to be able to do so.

Small Mercies – Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for small mercies. This last week, Mom tripped over some shoes that hadn’t been put away properly. She had been moving a chair at the time and couldn’t catch herself. She hit the ground hard and struck the opened front door on her collar bone. Other than some bruises that will need to be iced all week and needing to use my cane more (and finally acknowledging that she needs a cane herself for some days) she’s fine.

Nothing broken, no head traumas and only a small scrape on her knee. She also hit the good knee rather than the bad one. She’s sore and a little slower for a while, but she’s not hurt badly which is a small miracle and mercy.

Like many times when one of us has fallen, it could have been worse, should have been worse, in fact. And yet, it wasn’t.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday. ( I will update the link when able.)
