I haven’t been in the pool since well before my fall. The reason being, the pool at my gym is outdoors. So, while at my nephew’s birthday pool party, I embraced the opportunity to hop in to an indoor pool on a day were temperatures reached beyond 100 degrees.
Needless to say, the pool was crowded. I managed to swim a fair amount of laps and was ready to give up the lane to Lil Sis when she said, “Don’t lose the lane. Just keep swimming.” She promptly hopped out to say goodbye to a few of the guests.
I continued on, hearing Dori singing “just keep swimming” as I went back and forth.
After a long bit, I wondered if Lil Sis was sitting in a chair with the gang laughing at me and taking bets on how long I would keep swimming before I finally gave up the lane.
Fortunately, she did finally return and we swam a few more laps together before I got out, leaving the lane to her and Chris.
I sure was nice swimming again, even if only for a short while. I have to admit, it was a blessing to have been encouraged to just keep swimming in spite of being tired. Thanks Sis!
