Do you see it? Look again...
There it is.
On a rock.
My beautiful mother-in-law found this rock for me on Wild Horse Island on a day when I was not well enough to look for my own. I have spent the last couple weeks in a whirlwind of medical procedures looking for answers to some sensory issues I am having in my butt and legs. For now, the treatment is a wicked three-week round of mega steroids that have left me in a stupor on the chaise lounge in my backyard. I have a very fuzzy brain after I take the medication in the morning. I've done some internet shopping in my dizzy state. Looking forward to seeing what I get in the mail. Hahaha.
The good news is that I am well on the road to recovery, having started the taper that will bring the medication back down to none. That will be a glorious day.
In this moment, though, I am so thankful for:
Faith...I've pressed in to the Father, He has loved back with good promises.
Family...I am a lucky girl, surrounded by a family who loves selflessly.
Friends...They make my world bright.
Hope...This amazing body is fighting hard for normal. I feel at peace and confident.
Joy...It is NEVER dependent on circumstances. I choose joy. Always and forever.
I am headed back out to the sunshine and comfort of my chaise. I think there is some hookie-yarnie-goodness waiting for me there, too. Life is a crazy beautiful thing. I intend to live it well and without regret.
