Life was never promised to be easy. Some days it is a bit more overwhelming for me to deal with than others. Today is one of those days. My pain has been elevated. I have been working hard around the house and out in the yard. I still have a lot to do and it makes it hard when there is the pain.
My pain isn't as bad as it used to be. For that I am really thankful. It still wears on you. My exhaustion goes up. My hands don't work the way they are supposed to. My legs don't work the way they are supposed to. My neck, shoulders, upper back, hips, lower back and knee areas have spots that turn into sore spots.
It is one of those days where I want to scream. I want to cry. I want to lay down and sleep but can't because I have a house full of children. I had so much more on my list to accomplish but it was to much today.
It always seems like when I have pain everything else is even more overwhelming. Why is that? Why does physical pain cause everything else to be so much more difficult?
Here is the best part for me right now, even though it has been hard tomorrow is a new day. I get to close my eyes, talk to Christ, sleep and refresh and wake up tomorrow and start over.
I will wake up with pain. I will wake up with things to do. I will wake up and say thank you for allowing me to have another day.
