Glad To Be Alive

I woke just a bit after 5 this morning and knew immediately I was getting sick. As I came to myself and Campbell began to give me his morning kisses I felt as if someone had run over me with a train. It seemed to me that every bone in my body was yelling at me all at once, my head felt fuzzy and my sinuses throbbed with every breath.
While I’d slept the night through, only waking once during the night, it felt as if I could turn over, go back to sleep and sleep the day away with no trouble what so ever.
In stead I sat myself up and putting my feet onto the floor declared…
“I refuse to give into this. I am well.”
Making my way to the bathroom to take care of my necessary, I washed my face, brushed my teeth and made ready to face the day.
As is always the case Campbell was wiggling, wagging and dancing all over the place, happy to be alive. He was ready to go out into the freshness of early morning relieve himself and have a good sniff of the morning’s scents.
Once that had been accomplished, he’d been fed, his meds given for the morning and we’d had our hangout time I set about making a cup of coffee and beginning the day.
After checking email and sharing a few posts I sat thinking about how my body was feeling and soon I knew I was very glad it was indeed Saturday morning and that nothing much would be expected of me this day. I decided I’d simply take it easy and see what the day brought.
As I finished that first cup of strength and planned some morning housework I was just glad to be alive to greet the day and so as is my way I prayed…
“Thank you for the morning sun.
Thank you when this day is done, all our needs, wants and desires they’re met.
Thank you for what we have and for what we have not yet.
Thank you when this day is through, we will still be we and you will still be you.
Light our path and guide our way.
Give us what to do and say.
So Mote It Be.
Blessid be, amen.

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting on my posts.

      I find that if I try to keep a good focus it helps me get through my days a bit easier.

      Writing about these things I go through in this way and using my daily devotions to help express that which I go through in a positive way helps me get that done.


  3. I was out yesterday and didn’t see this post until late last night but I just wanted to say that I was sorry you weren’t at full strength but mightily impressed with your attitude towards it. Hope you’re feeling better today.

      I find that having a good attitude about things no matter how hard they are is the only way to make it through.

      While I do become frustrated with my circumstances at times, like this morning when my stupid phone charger finally bit the dust and I had to use duct tape to put it back together until I can order a new one well what could I do but laugh about that.

      Yesterday I knew if I gave into how badly I was feeling when I woke it would ruin the whole day. So, what else to do but push through keep my attitude straight and go onward.
