Have A Blessed Day
I hope this message finds you well and happy today, friends.
I haven’t been giving this blog the attention it deserves, but being so sick lately has me focused on more pressing matters. I go to bed each night with the best of intentions. Tomorrow will be different, I say to myself. And then the morning brings the usual~relentless pain, fatigue, depression and weakness. Appointments, tests and simple household stuff take everything I’ve got. Getting online and typing a few paragraphs have been impossible on most days. I’ve had nothing left for the things that give me joy. And this needs to change, for the sake of my spirit.
Today I looked out my front window and spied the loveliest rose blossoms on one of three bushes that grace my front yard. Although my legs were so ridiculously, embarrassingly wobbly, I summoned up the energy to step outside and take a few photos. I haven’t been pleased with my photography skills lately, and sadly that is my main reason for avoiding it over the past few weeks. Lupus and fibromyalgia are causing severe neuropathy in my arms and legs; I haven’t been able to lift my 1 pound camera on most days, let alone hold it perfectly still for the beautifully defined, crisp shots I always want to achieve; and problems with my coordination have made it difficult for me to pull out my tripod and mount my camera properly.
But I’ve got to keep going, keep trying.
And today, by this very simple act, my spirit is joyous and healed again.
Friends, I wish you a beautiful day.
And good health, lots of love, and a happy spirit.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
