Today, in the coaching section I was intrigued by a poster that said to do one thing I was proud of today. And I had an answer-I did it! I was scheduled for a cervical MRI- this meant I would have to lie on my back for 20 min. or so. The problem? Because of deteriorating discs and arthritis, I haven’t been on my back for that long in years! As the technician tried to help me with pillows and put the ”head gear” on, I was praying hard for God’s peace. I began to seriously hurt about ten minutes in, but I kept telling myself I could do this just a little longer. I used my toes and fingers to count to continue to distract myself. It got to the point where I thought that I would have to push the button and stop! But just then the technician was sliding me out! I had done it!! The very thing I had come to tears about the night before, I had conquered with God’s help. I was shaky and exhausted, but I thought I must have felt what Rocky did when he climbed those steps and danced around. I however carefully slid off the table and limped to my transport. But inside, I was dancing!
