This weekend I had a minor accident and dislocated one of my fingers. I have had to be patient with swelling that won’t go down and a fingertip turning all shades of the rainbow. I have had to be gracious with my husband as he plays nurse and fashions as sweet splint for me. But most of all I have had to be patient with myself. I have had to rest in the fact that some healing is slow and that I can’t do everything exactly how I did before…Some things I might not be able to do at all.
