The problem is that my body aches. It hurts, at moments, to touch my hair. Yes, my hair. The same hair that needs the prompt and adept attention of a stylist. But if I can't touch it without feeling pain then no one else will either. One minute I'm hot, then I'm cold almost as if I were standing outside in this wonderful winter weather we are having. My bones creak and pop when I move. There are some spots on my skin that hurt even though there is no visible trauma.
I have peaks of energy. I can sit up for a while and then I feel, nope, I better lay down before I fall out. This morning I could barely walk upright but I pushed through it so that I could make sure I had something to eat. Now these aren't complaints if you thought they were. They are just observations because while I sit here on this laptop, fully aware of my surroundings, in my right mind and am able to communicate there are others that I know of that can't do any of this. Some are so sick that they are literally dying as I type this.
So you know what, I can't complain. I refuse to complain because it could be worse and there was a time when it was worse. Even though people don't always have to be suffering from an illness before they will pass away from this earth, I would like to believe that I'll see tomorrow. There are some who are holding on to only a few more minutes right now.
So I pray peace and comfort to anyone experiencing pains right now. Whether it be from a small injury to old age or something more serious such as recent surgeries to cancer. I hope that you can find something pleasant and redeeming to think about in the very hour that you might feel your worse. I hope that you have hope and I hope that you have support, love and understanding from those around you.
Peace and Blessings.
