of opposable thumbs! Last week I slipped going down some stairs and caught myself with my right hand. I figured it was slightly sprained but didn't think too much about it. I proceeded to do all the many things I needed to do, not realizing that the overuse of my hand was delaying the healing process. It became very painful to do even ordinary activities.
Yesterday evening I decided that I had to do something to force my hand to remain stationary, so I ran to Wal-Mart and bought a thumb stabilizer. Oh dear. Have you ever realized how many simple, everyday things one does using their thumb?
I look pretty silly, and I am awkwardly trying to forge ahead with Thanksgiving preparations. I am doubly grateful for helpful daughters this year. They have been great in helping get all our preparations done.
I had already decided that the underlying theme for our family celebrations this holiday season would be "Relax; enjoy, and just do the best you can do". Little did I realize how important that attitude would be.
So, that is what I am going to do. I am going to relax as best I can, enjoy the great company that I will be spending the holidays with, and toss perfection out the window while just doing the best I can do.
Have a wonderful holiday. Count your blessings, while I find someone to take the turkey out of the oven for me...
