Fresh flowers on the table in my favorite blue pitcher(my nephew made it), a lavender candle burning brightly,a
few dollars in cash.....thus began my gratitude ceremony tonight......it had to be. Today, my last day on meds to fight the infections that I have dealt with since mid-May. This journey has been most difficult, it has taken its toil on my spirit and my body, but tonight it is over. I have been taught many lessons these past few months,some it seems over and over, and I hope that I have gotten the message, because I don't want them again.
There were moments, when I crumbled, but all is good now. I am different today, so aware of what has taken place in my body, aware of how fragile life can be......I told Rick that at times, I felt the universe bitch slap me, until I was silly and I thought I would never stand again.....but here I am.
Tonight, I am thankful, tonight I am grateful, tonight I reclaim my good health. Gratitude, for all that is good,
for all who love me, who sent me their energies, prayers, and love. Candles, flowers, a gift of cash to someone who needs it, dark chocolate, a glass of champagne, and the promise of another day, and another song to sing. I have some new scars, and there is still a ways to go, but I am grateful....no more meds, no antibiotics, no steroids, did I tell you how grateful I am?????
Sleep, blessed sleep, since Thursday night, I have slept, the first time in three weeks.....and I am grateful.
I can breathe.....and I am grateful.
Peace to you all, gratitude to you all, love to you all.
Good night, sweet dreams.
