I have adjusted my day today to focus on fM; footnote Maven. I was deeply saddened to hear she went in for a third surgery on her knee this morning.
Upon reading this sad update, I immediately decided to go to the gym and work out with my personal trainer. I explained to her that I was there to work out as hard as possible ~ to sweat the infection out of fM's knee. My trainer did her job, she worked me and concentrated on my legs. When I wanted to quit, I kept going, reminding myself that I was very fortunate to be able do this workout and I had to work very hard to help fM. I was drenched when it was over.
Most of you who know me know that I need lots of working out. This is something very new to me and I haven't been at it very long. My thoughts were that poor fM wasn't able to do this, so I would do it for her today. I would give it my best to help eliminate her infection.
When I came home, I showered, washing away the sweat and infection. I then did a meditation, dedicated to fM and her family. I wish I could be there to help them all and give support, but I can't. Instead, I dedicated my day to them all. I have said prayers and had them in my every thought and action.
Did you know fM and I are cousins? Actually, we aren't, but we have one common bond which fM felt was enough to call me cousin. I have felt a special closeness to her ever since, even though we don't communicate with each other very often. When we do though, we are cousins. I have to remind myself most of the time that we really aren't cousins. We are not blood cousins, but cousins because we want to be, and that is good enough for me.
I am praying dear cousin that you are having a much better day, that surgery went well and you are free from pain. I hope I have been of some help getting rid of the nasty infection in your knee, I will keep working at it. I feel helpless, but hope you and the family know my day has been dedicated to you. I will continue with prayers and setting intentions for your healing. You are all constantly on my mind.
Thank you DearMyrtle for keeping us all informed about fM. We all really appreciate it. I know you let the family know we are all praying for her. Thank you again.
It is about 5:15 p.m. I wonder how fM is doing. I know we will hear just as soon as possible. This post is dedicated to her.
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
