So I'm still on the mend...
It's been a very difficult recovery you know! NO energy, stiffness on my neck and back, and my 3 inch incision bugs the heck out of me. However, I am thankful to God for all the blessings He brings to me daily such as having a darling of a husband who has been nursing be back to health (he is an engineer who has taken on the role of nursing very well), my family, friends, and coworkers. Everyone has been so supportive and checking in on me daily.
Last night I had a horrible night, my JR heard me and got up to give me my pain medication - you see - he is a sweetheart and I love him so very much. I couldn't sleep, I got up and checked Pinterest and then my blog and some of yours, but I just couldn't find peace. I returned to bed and when I feel like this, I always reach for my rosary. I began to pray and meditate on the mysteries of the rosary when I wondered how many people must be feeling the way that I was, but had no one to take care of them or to pray for them. I gush of tears overpowered me just thinking of how many laid alone at home or in a hospital bed in pain and suffering. So I wondered, what could I do? Sometimes we forget of how powerful prayer is and that lifting someone up in prayer is free, right? I can't begin to tell you how healing it is when you allow yourself to decrease and for Him to increase as you pray. No, I am not pain free and I probably won't be for a while, but I am thankful that I was given a reminder that there are others that need prayer.
As I mentioned in my title, I am on the mend and hope to return to work by June 1. Even though I've had a lot of time at home, I've had no energy or inspiration to do anything - I guess pain will do this to you huh?. It's been pretty bad and I've been bummed quite a bit.
For those of you who are thinking what in the heck is she talking about, read here.
Here is a photo of dried lavender roses some of my students brought me when they visited. They are so lovely, even dried don't you think?
I hope you have a good week. I am, I am not taking this sitting down. I will continue to visit your blogs and I ask that you forgive me for not leaving comments.
Creating for the greater good.
