Being Optimistic

By Susan Knight

Was feeling a little down because my ankle doesn't seem to be healing as fast as I thought it would.

Got a wonderful blessing yesterday from my son and son-in-law. I was told to be optimistic, to do what the doctor tells me and that I will walk again.

That's what I wanted to hear. I've been praying so hard along those lines. I'm glad for priesthood blessings that let my Heavenly Father speak to me in no uncertain terms.

Going to see a new doctor tomorrow. The doctor who performed my surgery is leaving for a three-year mission (Mission Prez) tomorrow, so I'm seeing his son. A new guy. I'm told by those who have seen him, he is very good, too.

I'm still praying fervently, though.

Optimism helps so much for the mental state which then helps your whole being. The hardest thing about recovering is the patience it takes. Good luck with your new doctor, I'm sure he will be just as good and as brilliant as his father.

Thanks so much for your comment. You are quite right on all accounts.
New doctor very nice and said I am exactly where I'm supposed to be, except my ankle is very weak. I told him I haven't walked well on it for almost two years.
Here's to getting better. My optimism factor was lifted, along with my mental state--also I got a new pair of Skechers and they are heavenly to walk on :)
Thanks again!
