Monday Morning Quarterback

Stuff I learned on Sunday

Some Sundays the foot you put forward got stepped on Saturday night and you limp all day.

Lean into that limp. Compensating for it won’t make it hurt less, and you’re likely to injure your good foot. Do the best work 1 and 1/2 will allow. Know that you can’t push off like you want to today. Something will have to give: grace, the groceries, that phone call, kindness.

You’re not making excuses. You’re injured. You’ll be better next Sunday.
