I Fell, and I Got Up

by E.h. Bennett

I fell in my bathroom last night. No blood. I’m okay. Adrenaline and shock are starting to wear off…

Roommates came running at the sound of my forehead hitting the bathroom wall. Had to push my Life Alert button for the first time, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

Roommate wrangled the dogs, while another wrangled me. The paramedics arrived, lifted me to my feet, rolled my walker to me. And I walked back to bed. They spotted me, of course.

Point is, if I can rise up — with assistance — so can you.

If I can continue to produce — casting and working with designers — so can you.

If I can continue to write — so can you.

Don’t ever give up.

Happy Thursday, my Friends.

    Whew! Glad you got up and had help! Keep on truckin’ (and writin’)!

    Amen. You exemplify and inspire greatness…
