Simple Pleasures Despite the Pain
Last night I was in pain and felt hot, which is normal for me in the early morning hours when I cannot sleep. I decided to step outside and entered a cold and beautiful world. There was a combination of snow and freezing rain in the air. It sparkled under the streetlights as it fell and also shimmered across the white blanket of snow in our front yard. I sat there on my front walkway bench and soaked it all in. It was magical to be wrapped up in all of it. I would have missed out on this moment if I did not live with Fibromyalgia because I would have been asleep when all this "magicalness" took place. Yes, there are moments of great simple pleasures in life despite the pain. One only has to look for and appreciate them. 😊

We all need to appreciate those simple yet special moments in our lives. Those are the times I think God is speaking directly to us.ReplyDelete
Amen my friend!Delete
I can just picture it. I hope and pray the flares ease up.ReplyDelete
It snowed here, again, yesterday and last night. The grounds crew was busy clearing snow about 5AM which upset MrDog. He alerts and tells me someone is on 'our' sidewalk and then we both went back to sleep.Just enough snow to be pretty...and hard to drive in. I try and remind myself that this means water for the summer.
Stay cozy. Hugs,
That is a good attitude to have. Are you expecting more show tonight or tomorrow like we are?Delete
I tell my kids, you can look at the good or you can look at the bad. Good job looking at the good. There is good all around us. We just need to see it. Have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
Yes there is and I hope you have a wonderful day also!Delete
We actually got a half inch of snow on Wednesday, during the morning hours. It melted quickly, but it was a crazy thing to have around here in March! Our niece really doesn't like snow, so my husband went and picked her up from her program, instead of making her ride the bus home. Like he said, "It was nothing a few nuggets and fries couldn't fix". Thank goodness! There are times when she gets super upset by snow. (I'm talking total meltdown). I did enjoy looking at it, and I'm glad you could enjoy your snow as well.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you are doing what you need to do right now to take care of yourself. Hang in there!
LOL! I love your husbands attitude and how you and he both know M's needs so very well. :)Delete
Oh sweetie, as a person has lived with chronic pain, I understand trouble sleeping. You found the beauty and the blessing in that magical experience. Praise the LORD! We fight our battles with worship and praise. Hugs to you! LauraReplyDelete
Much love to you Laura!Delete
Just happened to stop by tonight. Fun to see you replying to comments. The forecast was for the snow to start around 5pm tonight. So far, it's just been 'chunky' rain and no snow. I had hoped to go to a garden meeting tonight but stayed home when I read the forecast. I won't be surprised when I wake up and see snow in the morning.ReplyDelete
How much snow did you end up with? It is snowing here right now. :)Delete
I haven't come here for a while, but I'm finnaly back at blogging!
Around here, the nights are starting to warm up.
Hope you have a great week and God bless you!
HI Paula! I have been really bad about blogging and visiting friends in blogland also. It's good to see you back!Delete
Hi. We barely got a trace of snow and they were predicting 3-5 inches overnight. Maybe you got it? I'm so glad for the break. But it was cold.ReplyDelete
I'm taking it easy today and skipped the thrift store's Senior day. I did go to the nonprofit grocery store just to get out of the apartment for a bit and scored some milk, eggs and TP. The time change is effecting me for some reason.
