Recover is the last word of the year for the One Word at a Time Blog Carnival. I decided to participate,  because I feel guilty for always visiting the site and never contributing and after my knee surgery four weeks ago, recover is something I really want.
I've been fortunate in that I don't know what it is to recover from anything except for a broken collar bone as a child and the usual bouts with the common cold. In my 54 years of life, a torn meniscus is my biggest problem. I will recover.
I can say that because I want to walk and kneel and maybe even run again. I have the desire and drive to see that it will happen. It was just two days ago I started going down steps one leg at a time. It wasn't pretty, but it was one leg at a time.
I know that in order to recover, you need support. Family has picked up the slack around the house. Co-workers have given their words of encouragement and understanding. Most of all, I'm sure I've been the subject of a prayer or two. It's funny how I can feel some other force (not the right word) helping me along.
That's how I plan to recover; support, desire and prayer.

It will all be alright, I will recover.

Wonderful light in the photo and in your words. Blessings, Steve, as you continue to recover.

It sounds a long slow process. I do hope your recovery is good enough so that you do run again. You sound determined, so I'm sure it will be.

A wonderful photo. And yes, you will recover. Not a fun surgery (I've had it twice!) but sometime in the future, you will be back to your regular self. Huge pain to not be able to get around well! Wishing you a great new year!

I'm sure the recovery process must be frustrating. Just keep looking on the positive side. Like for example, you haven't lost your great eye for photos! I'm thankful for that :) Slowly but surely you'll get there.
