Well. Another week coming to a close. I looked up how long it can take to heal from the type of break I have; could be 3 more months. Then I read, in the third of the Elizabeth Goudge trilogy, about how Sally, (one of the characters in the novel), when she was exhausted, would just think to herself: "I just have to do the next thing" and nothing more. And that's how she would endure the hard times. So pretty much nightly I have swelling and foot pain. But something that has helped me this week is what helped this character in the EG book: what a priest told me once: just do the thing in front of you that needs doing.
