Submission and splendor is the topic of this week's moment to count the Omer, according to the Velveteen Rabbi. It's hard to think of these two things right now, as late last night I got told I have to wait yet a few more days to get my cast off. I was angry, frustrated, and upset. I wasn't finding it in myself to submit to the necessary waiting. Perhaps the extra few days is needed for my healing, after all, and the moving of appointments was for my own health as well as someone else's emergency surgery. Still, it was hard to accept. Giving in to the waiting feels very close to giving up, and I'm not the type to give up so easily, even if I sometimes stomp my metaphorical foot and threaten to do it. I had originally planned an afternoon out with sis today, with my OS appointment then lunch, then her appointment as well. With my appointment cancelled, it seemed our day would be a bust, but she decided heck with it, we were going to have fun anyhow. She's so good to me!
