Today was a difficult day. My head pain level increased. Good news is we got our car in the shop for repairs and got a rental this morning (It was hard to wait for almost an hour with a headache and an unhappy DH). Having said that, DH stayed home and took care of me and things around the house since I was having a hard time. I have a dr's apt tomorrow afternoon and am fortunate my dh will take me. ( I called the DR befor 11am but didn't get a response until about 3 and then a time at 5 but I got scheduled thanks to God! and my Dr.). I was able to get some rest - thanks to my family. My dh heated up some soup for dinner, did the dishes, took care of sorting out the fridge, took out the trash, retrieved our car garage door opener (earlier today - we realized after we came home in the rental that we had forgotten to take it out. I am glad my dh had the house keys because I forgot mine!) He also mailed some bills and made sure I rested. What a blessing he was today!!!!! (and many days during this season!) I am so thankful dh's boss is so accommodating!!!!!!
I remembered I asked God for me to carry the pain of my friend who is going through a rough time. I am thankful for the increased pain in that regard and thanked God for it. I was happy she had some relief today. That made my suffering sweeter knowing that. I know that God ultimately carried all of our pain and I am so grateful for that and grateful that He allows me to partake in His suffering so I can identify with Him more fully and be better equipped to help others who are also experiencing pain. I spent a lot of time with Jesus today and learned much in that Sacred time. Right now the pain is more manageable. I regret that I complained at its apex (and honestly other times) and am grateful that He walked me through it. I hope I can sleep tonight for I have been having a hard time.
I miss my Spark friends a lot. Please bear with me as I go through this. I pray we all grow stronger as we go through our difficulties. I know many of you are suffering in many ways even more intense than me and my heart goes out to you in love and prayer.
PS My dd2 ankle has been healed since December! She has a little soreness but other than that A-ok! Praise God! Thanks so much for praying with me for her!!!!!
