His life has been good. There’s been the ups and downs
however he’s weathered them well; in fact he’s the go-to person for his friends
and family, their rock.
One day while walking his dog he fell and hurt his shoulder.
A visit to his doctor, nothing was found; he was told it would heal with time. The days
and weeks turned into months, all while the pain increased. He returned to the
doctor, this time an MRI found his neck was broke. A surgery was date set. Each
day closer to surgery, the anxiety amplified.
He updated his family and friends on Facebook. Well wishes,
prayers and healing thoughts of many commented to his plight.
Typically our thoughts run a muck, they might include, Why
me? What did I do to deserve this? I don’t have the time/ money for this! When
we experience traumatic pain, our system (body/ mind/ spirit) is compromised. We
believe vulnerable equates helplessness and being out of control. Fear and
anxiety of the unknown surmounts; admitting any of this is too much. At times, God
isn’t enough. We’d never admit that either.

The nurturers, caretakers and rescuers are readily available
to others needs and ignore their own; they are the self-appointed managers of
the Universe, they don’t ask for help.
Our lives have been designed by balance: this occurs with reciprocation. Reciprocation is to
give and to receive; imagine life without one or the other. For some of us,
this can be a painful learning experience.
Allowing someone to help us is honoring their goodness, ours
and our creator.
Wishing you well!
