surgery, gathering place, and help
posted by soe 9:13 am

This is a day late, but it’s been a long week, and I was so tired last night that I fell asleep as soon as I got into bed.

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Rudi’s mother had her second hip replaced and the doctor says that the surgery went well. Her hip was badly degraded and her leg length had shrunk by 1.5″, which explains a lot of the pain that she’s been in the last few years. I’m delighted that she’s finally taken care of it, and hope this means she’ll feel better and more energetic moving forward.

2. We gather with friends at a recent addition to the bar scene in our neighborhood. It’s a place where you can play board games, and where you can bring in your own food. We opt for pan-Asian takeout and a modern version of Trivial Pursuit, which even if it wasn’t very good, did offer us entertaining insights into what the game makers consider “literature.”

3. It is remarkably hard to accept help when it is offered. It’s even harder to ask for it. We are getting better at it.

That’s it for me, probably until next week’s 3BT post, although maybe I’ll get something up after the weekend (Sunday is the blog’s 8th anniversary, after all). We’ll see. But in the meantime, tell me what’s been beautiful in your world this week. I really would love to hear it.
