Unfortunately, once you wake up and worry that a significant limb isn't working, you just can't go back to sleep after that. (Although I am right handed, so maybe I should have been able to?) And I've been wide awake ever since.
After laying in bed for quite some time, wishing for the sleep that has been eluding me for the past several days, I finally decided to just get up and read my scriptures. I have always found solace in reading scriptures early in the morning--being spiritually fed at the beginning of my day makes the world seem like a better place.
And this morning's reading? It was the best.
I read what I needed to, I found peace and comfort, and today is A Better Day.
In fact, I have been geniunely overwhelmed with my blessings today. It started when I dropped Miss B off at preschool and her teachers handed me some frozen casseroles they had made for me to stock the freezer and use during my recovery.
And then my friends took me wig shopping--which I really think EVERYone should do at some point--and it was just fun.
|We decided this was the mermaid/Repunzel look.|
|I actually bought this one, I think it will look cute pulled up half-way or into a loose ponytail or side ponytail, don't you think?|
|I didn't get this one, made me feel too Cher-from-the70s.|
|This one was cute, but I found a cuter one later that I got instead.|
And then I got home to a box on my doorstop from one of my best friends that I have known since I was two. And in the past several days I have been sent so many sweet & salty & perfectly worded emails and messages and comments that my heart is just full.
How did I get to be so blessed? You all have picked me up when I was down, dusted me off, and now I feel like I'm crowd-surfing into this thing.
I honestly have no words to express my gratitude for each of you in my life. So I will leave it at this:
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
