Do you remember how to play kickball? I don’t remember playing as a kid, but I was also painfully shy in grade school and preferred to keep my head stuck in a book rather than risk embarrassing myself in a team sport or being picked last…again. I ran AWAY from the ball, not towards them….
When I worked as a nurse in Critical Care, I would frequently take care of patients after having major abdominal surgery. One of the most critical parts of their healing, and often the most painful, was for them to get out of bed and go for a walk.
It’s Thanksgiving and a wonderful time to share our gratitude! I am thankful to run with a group of kind, dedicated and hardworking individuals that constantly show up not only for themselves, but for each other.
