Friday comes so quickly!

Today I'm just going to focus on one thing. My hands.

In the last couple of weeks I've had terrible carpal tunnel problems. There is a reason I am grateful for this. A couple in fact.

First of all, I have had to stop, slow down and be more careful. I'm  pretty sure that dual-tasking, like playing with the ipad while I watch TV, has been an exacerbater of this problem. I have had to stop doing that. Put my wrists in braces and pay attention to only one thing at a time. I am enjoying that one thing I am doing much more.

It's also making me more careful about what I am expending energy for. After any prolonged activity my hands start to burn. And the braces go back on. So I am careful about what I'm doing. I have made sure to include the important things. Like work (I type a lot at work), and piano and organ. (I am now the ward organist! I'm such an old lady!) I have spent less time "plugged in to the mother ship" as Daniel and I call it. I've been reading instead of playing with technology. It's nice. My brain is grateful.

I am also glad I can sleep without the braces bothering me because that is helping tremendously.

Is there any trial that you have that is making you more grateful? Tell us about it. danielashleyadopt@gmail.com
