A gift.

A gift.

I was given an amazing gift today. I awoke – before the alarm. I was able to get out of bed without any of the stretching, groans, snooze alarm, mentally fighting my body to get up or stay in bed. I made 48 muffins for home and work. I was ready to go to work on time-waking my daughter. Smiling: I am feeling great – “I can tell” was her reply. I just had a different feel going to work. I was ready to face the day.
Today – should have been a flare. It is cold, cloudy, rainy – dreary day. The stress of a new Manager, the loss of 3 co-workers, increased work levels. Continuing to worry about my Dad. The lack of swimming… so many reasons that today should have been “peachy”.
I worked hard today – mentally and physically. I went swimming. It is 7:30 p.m. – I have no headache. I am tired but not exhausted. I don’t feel that if 8:30 doesn’t get here quick I will collapse.
I don’t know why I was given today. I am just so grateful. It took me this many years of life to truly appreciate a day. Not an event but the day itself.
