DEALING~

What a day yesterday was, I woke up aching from my hair to my toenails, I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and when it hits, it hits and usually hangs around several weeks to remind me I am a woman, not a machine…anyway…
My first inclination was to work from home, but it was Monday and I always have leadership meets on Mondays, not only that the budget was in and I had to have face to face with my Project Officers so off to work it was…and then the onslaught…

All day there were blessings…a wonderful interview by Anjuelle Floyd that touched me heart and soul…many messages from people currently reading my work and from those who had already read it...

Then there were trials, folks reminding me of obligations I had made months earlier and telling me not to get beside myself…dang…

I pushed through all of it…and it was a push, I had to make some decisions that though I knew were the right ones, they weren’t easy to make…I also had to take some words from folk I loved on the chin like the big girl I profess to be, because I knew they were right, double dang…

By the time I got home I was shaking with tiredness, but I knew my granddaughter was coming over for a bit, so I gathered what little bit I had and shared a wonderful two hours with her. She must have known that NaNa was butt-dragging because she was low key, we ate a bowl of rice and had a bit of juice and then mostly she stood by the window looking at the new roses I had planted…thanks, thanks, thanks..

When my man got home from a meeting we sat side by side after dinner, not saying much, he knew I was tired…

When I got in bed, I lay there, thanking God for another day, allowing this life he has provided me, roll before my eyes…though I still felt whipped, I felt BLESSED and THANKFUL…because I had come a mighty long way and was blessed to have the issues I had…for real…

Angela, what a heartfelt post! I've lived with fibromyalgia for ten years, so I completely get the struggle to keep the day from being overrun with the symptoms of chronic pain/illness. It can certainly put a kink in the writing plans.

I've subscribed to your blog. Keep writing and sharing your story honestly - it really does help me.

Angelia, thanks yet again for sharing a piece of you that many would've kept hidden.

I'm so sorry your day was a tough one, but I know in the end, there is always a reason we go through the things we do.

Hang in there!

Tee,
once I decided that I had a ministry in me, I knew that I would have to stand naked before those I professed to assist...so here it is...THERE IS STILL MUCH I KEEP~
