Coffee in my left hand, things I’ve missed most most during my injury in my right.

Here they are in no particular order of longing…

Crossing my legs

Driving

Cooking

Working (yep, it’s true)

Wearing high heels

Wearing 2 shoes

Pedicures

My own bed

Flopping down on my bed after a long day

Wearing my real clothes, not ‘easy to put on over my ankle’ clothes

Singing in the shower (there’s no joy when you have to shower seated and super careful)

Having everything in its place instead of down low where I can reach it

Having access to all my things and not just the survival few

Independence

Control

And lastly, I miss moving through the world blithely unaware of how important 2 good ankles are to my everyday of life.

Alexa, play ‘Miss You’ by Aaliyah…

  1. The little things… always the little things that make life better. That’s why we appreciate the small, seemingly mundane things of life. We do those every day. Great post on bringing us back to what’s important!
