Today was a good day

Merry Christmas! I made it through the day. {smile} No sadness, no crying, no thinking negatively… today was a good day.

I must admit. My Christmas Eve sucked. The doctor started me on a higher dosage of medication and it had my head hurting ALL DAY! I literally felt the effects of the meds oozing throughout my body an hour after I took it. Ugh!!! I tried extra hard to enjoy the day with my husband. We went to the movies and had lunch afterwards. Even through the pain, he always manages to put a smile on my face {that’s one of the many reasons why I love him so}.

Today, I made the choice to skip a day of the medicine just so I could enjoy a day without any pain. I succeeded! I know… I should not have skipped. And I would never recommend anyone doing that. But I just needed this one day to celebrate Jesus’ birth with my family – pain free. I will take it tomorrow, I promise.

The morning started off with holiday music playing throughout my bedroom. Just a little something to jump start my mood. Then my hubby and I prepared a non-traditional Christmas meal consisting of grilled steak, grilled veggies, tuna salad and a few other items. It was spectacular! Lastly, we topped off our meal with sweet potato pie and coffee. While the guys watched basketball all day (and I mean ALL day), I piddled around and entertained myself with social media and played gin rummy on my phone.

As I wind down from today, I am reflecting on the blessings that God has bestowed upon me. I am blessed. I am truly blessed beyond measure. I know this, even though sometimes my mind has me thinking otherwise.

Until next time… be blessed!
