carpe diem


Well it was a good 4 days. The first two were wonderful. I took walks pain free. I felt like Forrest Gump when he broke out his leg braces. I didn’t want to stop. I didn’t want to end the unexpected.

Day three leg pain started to rear it’s ugly head, but on a emotional high I fought back refusing to end or accept that I had my ” good ” days for the month.

But here I am forced to lay down. I’m once again reminded that I live with chroic dis-ease.

My legs feel as though they are being torched from the inside. Burning. Crackling. Like a campfire. I imagine that’s what it would look like inside. Flaming red hot.

I’m ever so grateful that I was physically refreshed even if it was only a few days.

Simple things become so rewarding. Who knew you’d wanna pat yourself on the back for doing dishes, making breakfast, managing 2 or more pots on the stove at the same time.

Don’t take for granted the simple things because one day they may not be be so simple.

I am continually learning to ” carpe diem ”
No matter the circumstance.

Through Christ who strengthens me, I can do all things.

I must go now. I pray for all my peeps and their peeps too!

God knows our pain. He hears our cry. He hasn’t left you or forsaken you.

Sweet dreams of angels and butterflies
