Today, I am grateful for U.S. Vets.
Their service to our country is
most essential to our freedom. Today and everyday I stand with them with my heart. Thank you.

I am walking much better..I need to, or my other joints pay the price...
This morning the back door was frozen shut, last night we had rain and wind and cold. With each passing day, as we approach colder weather, somewhere inside of me there lives a 'silent gasp'. I continually think about and fear this back step out of the house,
especially the black ice that was there last February.
It's where I fell and broke my ankle, oh so badly. This morning I am standing there and I am without my ankle brace. The step area is not frozen for now. (I had DH check it before I took a step that direction.) I have to continue to think about having to go outside over that step. I will have to eventually step there ~ with ice on it. I can't stay inside all winter.
Fear is a funny thing. I don't like having it.
I don't like vulnerability, either. Neither one - is ME!
Someone asked me recently if maybe I didn't suffer from PTSD?
Maybe I do?
I need to get over this..I will continue to work on it. It is therapeutic to write about it this morning. That 'gasp' has lessened. Thanks for listening.
