Indomitable, perfect timing and memory.

1) At the gym this morning, I watched a documentary following a helicopter paramedic crew. One call-out they received was to a man suffering a severe crush injury, and the programme followed some of his recovery, including an interview with his doctor. The doctor explained that with an injury like this, how well the patient recovered depended mainly on their own determination to do so.

Later, when I went to the weights room, I held the door open for a gentleman who literally shuffled along. My initial thought was “why is he here? He can hardly walk!”. But then I realised that he was the epitome of what that doctor was talking about – the determination of a spirit which will not give up.

2) The telephone engineer arrived 24 hours earlier than we expected. K called me on my mobile, and I was able to get home within five minutes of his arrival at our door.

3) For dinner I make the same meal as I made the first time I ever cooked for K – that was fourteen years ago!

This blog has served different purposes over the years - it started out following a Three Beautiful Things (3BT) structure: and I used to record three things, often the ordinary moments in life, which made me smile that smile. Then, I joined a community of knitters sharing my progress on what I was knitting that week. Now, after a long hiatus, I'm back to share an unusual new knitting project...
