I am sure that I am not the first nor the last dealing with long-term health issues that pushes too hard….to far…at times. Then of course…we do as I am now…”paying the piper”….sitting with the heating pad….knowing it really isn’t doing much….just not looking forward to the weight of a blanket on the side that cannot be touched.
I would do it again in a heart beat! I want to meet my obligations at work….there are set things that I cannot hand off. Then the most important part of the day comes after work! Watching my son play baseball! I know we will be disrupted by another hospital stay all to soon…I just cannot bear missing a moment cheering…..watching….participating!
I know tonight will bring little sleep. I will turn in into prayer and meditation time….afterall…just relaxing will help to provide energy for tomorrow. Tomorrow will be more low-key….no game…no important meetings at work…..just the best part of the evening…Cub Scouts! Smiling happy faces…the boys laughing and enjoying each other…learning and growing!
This is the daily struggle…the day to day that we “manage”……as we as parents…..manage our illness/sickness/pain…..our children do not realize the powerful role THEY play. Our kids are our inspiration…..our joy….our angels….that assist us each day. Overpowering the bad with the good….providing the “misdirection” that we need to lose focus on what we ourselves are dealing with….taking us “above and beyond”.

This touches me in ways I cannot begin to express. I also blog when sleep will not come; like now, so you’re not alone. Sending a smile from me to you.
Thank you! I will be able to rest a bit tonight…just knowing that someone else is there…that we are not alone. Your smile is felt…and appreciated! Keep fighting….and enjoying this beautiful gift we share…of life!
You are most welcome! I shall continue to give this health issue a run for it’s money…and I’ll be thinking of you as I do so.
