A blogger I follow, joypassiondesire.com , loves burgers, so when I went to lunch with my nephew Saturday, I had to order a burger. He rposts always make me think of burgers. 🙂
Last Saturday was a blessing. It was great to be able to catch up with my nephew. Lunch also made me realize how old I have gotten because my nephew, who I remember as a baby and a small child, bought my lunch for me. Times have changed 🙂
In the morning I met with a student from Brazil at my church. I had a few moments to chat about sports with a friend at church too.
After lunch with my nephew, I went to a local coffee shop and had an iced tea- Moroccan Mint. I just kind of hung out and relaxed.
Why did those things make Saturday a blessing? Friday I felt it coming on. My Fibromyalgia flared up rearing its ugly head. I felt it all day Saturday with the pain. I felt it in my joints and muscles. Living with chronic illness that is my reality. I never know when it will flare up. That makes the simple things in life so meaningful at times.
I am thankful that Jesus understands pain. On mornings when I wake up with pain, I always have pain so it a matter of degree of pain, I can pray and let Jesus know and ask him for grace for the day.
So reconnecting with my nephew who was in town for a few days, enjoying Moroccan Mint tea at a coffee shop. not canceling my study session with my student from Brazil in the morning all add up to Saturday was a blessing despite being in the midst of a Fibro Flare up.
I made a video sharing my experience with chronic illness several days ago.. After I watch it, I realized I have a face for radio not video lol. But I wanted to share it in case it can help someone living with chronic illness.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
