Allow me to introduce you to the bane of my existence…

No silly, not Ray….look a little closer….

Um, yeah. The sling.

Ray had surgery on his rotator cuff a few weeks ago. I’m not going to lie. It’s been hard doing everything myself. Even the little things, the things that I’ve taken for granted that Ray does around the house to help me out and make my life easier, have added up to bigger things for me the past few weeks.

Like unloading the diswasher while Jonah eats breakfast…

Or packing Jonah’s lunch for Parent’s Day Out while I blow dry my hair…

Or something as simple as switching the clothes from the washer to the dryer…

And don’t even get me started on rolling the trashcan up our steep driveway!

All of these things being tossed my way while still doing my normal things, plus being a caregiver to the “one-armed bandit” have been tough. It’s been a dose of reality. A dose of humility. A swift kick in the butt. Yep, I’ve been inconvenienced by my standards, but then I hear an echo of a promise made…

I, Sara, take you Ray, to be my lawfully wedded husband,

to have and to hold from this day forward,

for better, for worse,

for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health,

to love and to cherish;

from this day forward until death do us part.

 Hmm….suddenly I don’t feel so inconvenienced anymore…
