                               Try, Try Again

   Try is a word I have heard many times this week. Try flexing more, try extending more, try holding that 10 more seconds. I am trying and by golly, I am doing just fine. I have this non- permanent tattoo on my other knee, the one that was not replaced a week ago, to remind me that healing is natural. It can be easeful and happens through grace. 

There is a part of trying that implicates failing. If I am trying I have not succeeded. And, the reverse is also true. There is a part of trying that indicates success. So, I live in a shaky, wobbly world just now of trying with of hope of success and healing. There seems to be some pain in both the failing and succeeding. 

 I have been writing with the Five Minute Friday group for three years and I really enjoy the talented writers who share themselves each week.


  1. Sending healing vibes your way. Don't overdo it! You're will heal in time and with grace.

  2. Pain in both healing and succeeding... I need to ponder this awhile. Best wishes as you heal!

  3. I'm glad you're making good progress, and I'm sure the hope of success and healing makes it worthwhile to keep trying.

  4. I'm next door to you (#29) in the linkup today and am glad to read your post. How true: trying is failing, and trying is succeeding, and there can be pain in both. Just one of the many paradoxes of life. By the way my husband is a nurse who works with orthopedic patients so he knows all about knee replacements, hip replacements, etc. I hope this surgery has given you a new lease on life!

  5. Heal in that Ease and that Grace dear brave heart. We're praying for you.
