I won something!

I was surprized to open my email yesterday and find a n email from Kourtney over at Pagan Pages Blog Hop.  I never even thought about the award she gives every month for the blogger who has the most qualified post for that month.  In July, that was me!  So, I now proudly display the award badge on my sidebar.

All ya'll who read me (I know that there are one or two out there), should head over to Pagan Pages Blog Hop and take a look.  I have been a member of the site since December and LOVE it.  There ae over 100 members now and they are very interesting.  Of course, as the site name suggests, these are pagan blogs, but the content is not limited to posts of a pagan nature. 

Meanwhile, back at the bat cave, the shoulder is getting better.  Therapy is tough, but I know I have to do do it.  My passive range of motion is good, I just have to slowly work on my active range of motion starting in a week or so.  I just hate that I am still sleeping on the reclining end of the couch and not in my bed.  Oh, what I wouldn't give to sleep in my bed comfortably again!

Today was my first occupational therapy appointment since surgery and afterward I looked up who I should commune with to ease the results of that appointment.  I found Aceso and Achelois.  These two Greek goddesses are just what my poor aching shoulder need right now. 

Aceso is a member of a healing family that includes her sisters Aegle, Hygeia, Panaceia, and Iaso.  She is the daughter of Epione and Asclepius.  I look to her to help promote healing. 

For the pain, I turn to Achelois, which means "she who drives away pain". She was one of the seven Muses said to be the daughters of Pierus. 

I have decided to explore the Greek pantheon a bit more since Hera was the one who made herself known to me years ago.  If you would like, you can read the story here, simply skip the beginning if you get bored easily. 

So, I will sign off for now and take some time to get to know these lovely ladies.
