Major surgery and/or illness makes you realize that simplicity is the modus operandi of choice.  Yes, when you need the help of others, simplify your routines, your meals, your life.  This helps you simplify directions to the kind, generous folks that are helping you and helps make them pleased to help you.  Don’t forget these grand caregivers feel good about helping, but they need to be shown gratitude.

I have seen within my recent surgery/recovery the working of community, my family, friends, Friends, people I hardly knew coming together in a healing community,  weaving together a tapestry of calling and visiting to help me and cheer me on.  They fetched and carried, diverted me with interesting conversation, and just sat quietly by my side
