I am blessed. It might be difficult to see the good in all the awful that has been my life for the last 3 years. But if I didn’t try to find that good, I might lose myself in the wallowing of misery about all that has happened.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve wallowed plenty. But every day that I can get out of bed and through the day without elevated head pain along with all the rest, I am blessed. To be in a better place than where I was, I am incredibly grateful.
I spent a heck of a lot of time in bed during those lost years and I had begun to hate my bed. The bed was this place that I had to be. That I couldn’t escape. That I wished with all my heart for so long that I could leave and never come back.
These days, my bed and I have a much better relationship. It’s true. This bed is a place of rest and relaxation and yes, much better sleep than I’ve had in a very long time. I am blessed.
Gary keeps on telling me and other folks that I am back. I am once again the girl he met and fell in love with all those many years ago. I had lost my way, physically, mentally, and emotionally. And thankfully, due to so many healthy changes, I actually feel like the girl he first met and fell in love with. I am truly and ridiculously blessed.
But there is more to the story and we’ll get back to that in the coming weeks. For now? I am blessed.
