Day 136 - Healing
Nature is amazing; it takes care of us in so many ways (and the least we can do is return the favor... but I am not going to speak politically today). I am amazed at how the healing process goes on without our attention to it - it keeps going, cell by cell, restoring what was damaged. Persistent. Constant.
I am lucky that my thumb has done so well. I am fortunate that my immune system is intact; that my ability to heal is not compromised, that my shoulder where the tetanus shot was administered last week has finally stopped hurting. The cap of skin that I almost totally removed from the end of my thumb was no longer necessary, and my body let it go. Now I don’t have to wear a bandage anymore. It’s a fascinating process.
I am also healing emotionally from wounds sustained in 2010. I have found myself ready to move on - slowly, carefully, but steadily. I have made some good connections lately that are helping with that a lot.
Nature is taking care of me.
