MS Awareness Month 2021, Day 7
Today I list my gratitudes:
The sun is shining.
It is Sunday.
I am physically attending church for the first time in over a year.
My family is well.
Tomorrow is in the past. I realize the negative undertones of that statement, but we have days like that. Yesterday was mine. I was in great physical pain; mainly due to my legs not cooperating. I found myself people watching at the chopping mall and wishing out loud that I could once again walk like them.
I saw that girl in the heels bouncing along the corridors. I envied the chick in the Crocs whose feet STAYED inside her shoes. I lusted after the ease with which that girl wore those cowboy boots.
I cried all the way home.
Then I realized what I had done. I drove myself the twenty miles to the neighboring town. I didn't fall once. I didn't pee myself. I accomplished what I needed to do. and, even though I needed my walker, I had two legs.
The MonSter reminds us to be grateful.
Find gratitude in even the small things today.
