Gopher Gulch

Gopher Gulch: Sometimes, it really does take a village

The swallows are back, the lilacs are blooming and spring is evident wherever you look. And three months to the day after repairing my shattered wrist, Dr. Meyers gave me permission to lift up to 5 pounds. Can't do it yet, but anything less than that I know is safe.

It’s been difficult, this being still and requiring help. I’ve never been helpless before and I’m not good at it. Perhaps I needed this taste of what may be in the future for most of us.

The best part is all the help I was given so freely. I’ve been alone for years, and this has brought people back into my life. I’d forgotten how nice it is to visit with another woman, to go shopping together, to share a lunch or a laugh.
