A New Day

Wow!  What a weekend!  I had a rough week last week so I'm glad to wake up this morning and it's a new day!  The sun is shining and I actually feel...BETTER than I have in a while.  After two hospital visits, a gazillion tests, and lots of blood drawn, the conclusion was that I am having RA flareups in my back which led to cortizone shots.  I wasn't sleeping and literally couldn't lay on my back.  I completely thought that my back was giving out on me and that brought on MAJOR anxiety.  So, came home yesterday, took something to sleep, and feel as though I may have made it over the hump.  Having days like I've had this past week really makes you appreciate the good days that you have.  A day of not hurting is a day for celebration!

On another note, I read the first chapter of Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts and felt so much through that one chapter!  I cried and had to go hug my kids and just smell there scents and hear them laugh!  I encourage every one of you to read that book if you get the chance! 

I'll get back to posting my thousand things that I'm grateful for, but today I may need to take it easy.  I want to keep having days like today:)

Hugs and blessings!!
