Yesterday I was, to say the least, verklempt. Today, though the headache still rages like a violent storm, I am trying to focus on the positive.
My daughter woke me with a hug. She starts every morning that way. My son woke me with a snuggle. He starts every morning that way. Headache or otherwise, my kiddos love me and show me that each and every day.
My mother drove the kiddos to school, even though it meant interrupting her breakfast. She did the same thing yesterday, and she drove to pick them up. She backs me up always and just knowing I have someone who will is something to be thankful for.
A good friend reminded me that others have experienced similar difficulties, and though it took some time to find a solution, a solution was in fact found. That idea gives me hope, makes me remember when the storm is raging that I just have to hold on until the sun breaks through the clouds. (Figuratively, not literally, as the sun is kind of a bitch to deal with during a migraine)
I have people who love me, regardless of whether or not I can concur the world today. I have people who take time out of their day to help me heal and succeed. I have funny furry animals who snuggle me to keep me company, so I am not alone.
So today, despite yesterday’s unhappiness, despite the raging in my head, I am hopeful. I will read “Heal your headache”. I will pet my cat. I will try to get on with the day.
Thank you for the love.
