Sunday Quote: Health and Sanity


All sanity depends on this: that it should be a delight to feel heat strike the skin, a delight to stand upright, knowing the bones are moving easily under the flesh.  –Doris Lessing English Writer b. 1919

By this definition, I’m so stinking sane!

I was doing laundry today and was overwhelmed by gratitude. Monday, my doctor declared that the bones in my ankle showed remarkable “filling in” and he released me from care. My physical therapist also released me because I was walking well and just need to continue the exercises to strengthen that ankle and knee.

It’s been almost 5 months since the accident, and even though I’m out-of-shape, I feel healthier than I have in a long, long time. It seems like every day I discover something else that I can do easily.

I am in awe at the ability of the human body to heal. Do you need any other proof of a powerful force for good in the universe? I don’t have a church-ish conception of god, but I believe profoundly in an unseen, guiding force in the universe. If I keep my wants, big ideas, and grand plans out of the way, I know that my greatest good is unfolding even now.
