|Jeff, Steven, myself, Sonya and my cousin Tim|
This morning, when I woke up, I felt even worse than last night. The pain levels had me feeling nauseous. The only thing I can compare it to is having a bad case of the flu where everything aches and you just want to sleep to escape it. I knew though that my cousin Tim and his wife Sonya were coming in the early afternoon so I got up, showered, and then got a cheese plate, Summer sausage, crackers, and a fruit tray made. I then collapsed into my recliner.
My cousin and his wife pulled up and I got myself together. I had not seen Tim since I was 17 years old. I had lived with his family for 2 months between my junior and senior year of high school. It honestly felt like no time had passed and we were able to pick right back up where we left off. Sonya, his wife, is a total sweetheart and we bonded very quickly. Rachel and Steven came up and joined in the mini family reunion and that made it even more fun. It took all my energy but oh it was so worth it. 😊 My love tank is filled to overflowing once again.
I'm still flaring and am praying that I feel better tomorrow since my parents will be arriving to stay with us for the night and we have a family dinner at a park and then our oldest grandson Bradley's T-ball game tomorrow night. My parents understand that I struggle with my health at times and are great about pitching in with whatever is needed. I really am looking forward to seeing them tomorrow. I feel so very blessed at the moment. I may struggle with my health, but my family is so supportive and being with them brings me great joy!
