I Can Still Make My Own Bed

I learned something last night. I can still make my own bed. It might take 90 minutes. It may mean using slings and lifts and grabby sticks and my wheelchair, but I can do it from bare mattress to full coverage. This is an example of some of the things I have to be careful about, things I have given up because they are too difficult for me. The reality is that if I plan these things, go about them one step at a time, take breaks in the process, and focus on each step as I do it, I can still do things which I have become convinced were lost to me.

    1. I have learned the lesson of Archimedes. Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum strong enough, and I can move the world.
