When You Can You Must


It has been over a week since I had the strength to do anything towards my recovery. Nerve pain still won’t let me just take a long walk. I’ve spent most all my time either in the bed, tub, or headed to the next doctor’s appointment. I’ve had to keep myself from driving anywhere that wasn’t an absolute must. So, I’ve pretty much been driven by someone anywhere I’ve gone.

Well, thanks to over 10 hours sleep and then 3 hours in the tub following I felt my best in over a week. Not well enough to just run anywhere, but good enough I wanted to try and do something physical. My wife was taking my oldest son back to the University of South Carolina this afternoon so I hitched a ride with them. She dropped me off at the YMCA on their way. 

So, I was able to swim some laps in the aquatic center and then get on their hot tub for more exercise. It felt so good to do something more than just lay around. I feel so much better psychologically and physically right now. But, I had to seize the moment while I felt like it and had a Chauffeur. And I’m so glad I did. 

“Make the most of every opportunity because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:16)
