A SKILL I WANT (AND NEED) TO LEARN

 Blog > January Writing Prompt: A Skill I Want To Learn

January 13, 2021

Since I’m 80, soon to be 81 years old, the life skill I want to learn is how to lay my life in God’s hands so that I won’t be so fearful. Most of the time I don’t consciously depend on Him, but I do consciously pray to God every day. Whenever in recent years, I’ve neglected to pray in the morning, I am out of sorts that day. But beginning in March of 2020, I have never ever been that afraid! That's when our world was hit by COVID-19, a flu virus. It is still present, thousands of people are dying every week. However, a flu vaccine has been developed this month, January 2021. Along with health workers and other essential workers, we senior members are included in those being inoculated first. My appointment is Friday, January 15, at IU Ball Hospital. Both my youngest son and my only daughter have already had their first shot. They and all of us will later have another shot. I pray to our Lord that this will start our world to begin healing from this terrible virus.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted.  First, packing and moving and then unpacking . The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high.  About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pills No help; asked for another kind Doctor wanted to see me Went in- he didn’t understand why I was still in pain Sent me to get x-rays Diagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebra Cause: osteporosis Now on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether o
