.....must come down.
Remember that line for the old Blood Sweat and Tears song, "Spinning Wheel"?
Well....I can now vouch for there being a lot of truth in that little statement!!!
Wanna know why?
Because....Friday morning....I was working in my craft room...(I promise pics sometime this week).....and needed to do some rearranging on a top shelf.
Instead of doing the smart thing....and going to get the step stool.....I stood on the nearest, handiest thing available....my sewing chair.
I have no idea what happened....other than I fell.
It all happened so fast....and the only thing I really remember was landing on the floor....flat of my back....and my head bouncing....and the pain.....oh, the pain!!! Somewhere on the way down my right thigh had landed on a basket with a wire rim around the top....and my right arm had hit something....and my left ankle....and my right hip!!!
I lay there for a bit trying to regroup....and to make sure that nothing was broken!!!
You wouldn't believe the bruises that I have....and the sore spots I keep finding. Later on in the afternoon.....I couldn't help but realize....that where my head landed....was just inches away from a solid wood dresser....and if my head had hit the dresser.....well, I probably wouldn't be writing this blog post right now!!!!
So.....take my advice.....if you must reach something up high....take the time to go get a stepstool....or a ladder....or, a tall person!!!
(P.S....it's wishful thinking that I would look anything like that lady standing on the chair in the pic!!! ha! ha!)
Blessings to you!!!
In His Most Precious Love.....and with mine!!!
