Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


Yes…today my body said enough!  Enough with the touch of work you are attempting this week….enough with the walks you have taken….

A wall was reached today.  Mind and body are spent…..amazing how our body’s just step up and say….”That’s it!”

It reminds me of how much energy my body is using to heal itself.  Silent….steady….the body works hard to recover…..the owner of the body can be oblivious at times!

Feeling a surge of energy yesterday, I walked an extra lap around the house.  I let myself walk down a store aisle yesterday….instead of riding on a cart!

Today my body says “I’m tired!”  “We have done too much this week!”  Even the careful baby steps….with the rest….with the caution exercised.

Sitting in my chair….relaxing with feet up…..I can’t help but smile to myself.  I am reminded today, yet again, that I am not in control…..that I do not have power…..that I am physically quite limited.

These limitations and the tired…tired body….cannot hide the smile….the joy I have in watching my son dancing around the house…..watching his face light up when his Daddy asks him to go play catch outside…..to listen to his laughter…..

Yes….body is tired……mind might be a bit numb……heart is alive and well!
