What a long day!

It is funny how the days seem longer when you feel bad. It is almost 6:00pm and I am just now putting my face on and doing my hair. It seems like any type of movement is really hurting my arm, having it just raw like that is making me not want to move it at all. It is interesting to me how hard pain is on the body and the soul. I wonder if those who have good health really know how lucky that are? Sometimes when I see people who just come and go where ever they please, I wonder what that would be like? To me, every thing has a price to pay. If I go here for a hour or two, then I am down a day or two. I have to change my thinking and go back to all those  who have so much less than I, their limitations are far worse and then I remember not to complain or to envy others. So today will be a short entry. I saw the beautiful sun for almost 3 days now out my window. I didn't get to go out and enjoy it but...I was grateful to look at it and hope that some day my days will be shorter and full again! I have to keep telling myself these quotes to remind me that everything has a purpose. This one with Angie in it, the girls gave me framed for Christmas, so it is on my wall to remind me every day to keep my perspective.

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."   ___ M. Scott Peck

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."   ____Anne Bradstreet

Thanks for always being there!
