Find Joy In Every New Day

Hey there friends and readers.  I do hope this post finds you pain free or at least tolerable.  If you’re not up to par I wish you quick relief.

I tell you (well I probably don’t need to tell you) that being positive is something that has to be worked on in the challenging times of illness.  I know sometimes I am no Miss Sally Sunshine either and have my “moments” but I do recognize that if I just find ONE thing that makes me smile it changes my attitude.  I just need to find that little something and today it was my baby boy ferrets Simon and Smokie.  Here they are.

Normally my husband gets up in the morning and feeds all the critters:  we have 4 cats, 1 dog, 2 ferrets and fish.  This morning Rick had an early doctor’s appointment and he was able to get the cats and dog taken care of but not Simon and Smokie so I went in and boy were they happy to see me.  So I slowwwwwwly lowered myself to the floor (ya you know how hard that is for us to do let alone get up) and they had me laughing my fool head off even while I was battling some heavy vertigo.  Their jumping, running and “attacking” me just put me in the right frame of mind regardless of how I feel.

We just have to hold on.  The heavens know I have my days and pity party for one just as often as the rest of you but if we just need to find some Joy in everyday.  No matter how small it is.  Sometimes when I go to the grocery store (and I hate going there) I treat myself to a Starbucks and head for the floral department and stand there and smell the flowers.  The lady at Safeway who works in the floral department is used to my walk by sniffing sessions lol….

How is your day going?  Good, Bad or Indifferent….you can chat with me about it, I get it and I can be a great sounding board.

Here’s To A Pain Free Day!
