A Tragic Event Is A Hidden Blessing.
Last week I fell on the ice in my driveway. Hard! I woke up my son and he snapped into action. He drove me to the emergency room. After many tests, x-rays and scans, it was determined that my injuries were extensive. I shattered the round bone of my elbow. I also dislocated my elbow and ruptured the tendon causing my arm to painfully snap closed if not braced or held down. The other point of injury was my face. I broke my cheekbone and two bones around my eye socket. I bruised my shoulder and ribs and received three stitches below my eyebrow.
I am usually very healthy. I believe I inadvertently caused this fall to happen by worrying about my boyfriend falling. He had polio in the past and sometimes his legs collapse and he falls and hurts himself. I kept thinking and worrying about this and then I fell. I had also been talking at work about all my unused sick time. I very rarely call in sick, so I am capped at the maximum amount of time, meaning I have a lot of sick time to spare. I was saying how I needed a break from my work environment and how maybe I would use a lot of the time at once.
The Universe found a way to make that happen. I was able to spend some much needed time at home and get some projects done around the house. I also didn’t have to drive to and from work in the middle of winter. The best part is that my boyfriend came to stay with me and took care of my every need. This ended up being good for him as well, providing him with a nice place to stay. I had surgery on my elbow, which is healing well, although I am still in a cast. I have seen an ear, nose, and throat specialist, as well as my own doctor and they both had good news. I may not need additional surgery on the 3 broken bones in my face. I am picturing my bones fusing together and my swelling reducing and the pain subsiding. There has also been a real outpouring of support from friends and family reaching out and also stopping by with groceries, ice packs, chicken soup, gifts like gloves and warm fuzzy socks, etc. So as you can see, this really was a blessing in disguise. Thank you for The Secret.
