"And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
- Philippians 4:7
Thomas Wayne: And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
As most of you know by now, I too had a fall nearly four months ago. But instead of falling into an old well with bats, I fell down a mountain with sharp rocks and a semi-dried up waterfall. This fall resulted in a crushed fracture in my heel, a burst fracture in my L1 vertebrae, and numerous cuts and scrapes.
I've written about much of my journey on Facebook, so I won't repeat myself here, but I want to use this Manila Monthly update to highlight and thank the people who have been significant in my recovery up to this point (I still have a good 1-3 months of intentional recovery with physical therapy and then likely another 1-2 years after that of building back strength and stability).
