Injury healed

Last summer, my husband and I went on a golf trip with three other couples. I had spent months planning and booking the itinerary and also working hard on my golf game. A week before we were to leave, I felt something snap in my arm soon after beginning a golf lesson. Suddenly, I found it impossible to swing the club and was in pain when I tried. My golf coach was sympathetic and kindly refunded the lesson. She said I could come back after the arm had healed.

As I drove home, I tried to contain my panic. I knew I couldn’t manage my luggage or play golf in this condition. I dreaded explaining this to my husband and our travel companions. I knew that I needed to think clearly instead of ruminating on the possibility of forfeiting plane tickets and missing all the fun. I decided to call a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help right away.

When I got home, I went to my room and quieted all the negative thoughts before calling the practitioner. I briefly told her my arm was injured. Then I explained my concerns about our travel plans. I also shared with her that people had been questioning me about whether or not we “deserved” to go, whether we could afford it, and why some others hadn’t been included. This had been upsetting to me.
