It's hard enough when you don't feel well but when your face is contorting and you cant even get through a meal without thinking you head might explode (for a few moments anyhow) I DONT want to go out. Some days I wake up and feel good and usually they can be good days.. I'll still have my attacks and by the end of the day I am exhausted but at least I wake up some days and feel good! Today appears to be one.
At lunch not feeling well, nauseous and my head pounding - something was said.
I was not impressed and decided to walk home. I left my friend and walked home.
At some point I had another attack and started to cry partly from pain and partly for feeling sorry for myself and kept walking.
I saw a penny and picked it up.
two more steps and saw another and picked it up...
saw a 3rd and picked it up and started to smile.
A long time ago I was told a story I think by my friend Cathy about the rich man that picked up pennies and someone commented on how rich he was - he did not need to pick up pennies.. but he did because pennies remind him every time he see's one IN GOD we Trust. AS they say on every American penny. So that stuck with me. 3 is also my favorite/lucky/signifiant # - for a few reasons. I then continued - realizing it was a beautiful fall day! I would have never went for such a long walk voluntarily but with the leaves, sunshine and warm fall air it was a blessing is disguise!!!
Think about it when is the last time you saw a penny? 3?
I made it home and went to bed. The pain did not get much better.
Storm came home with some Monkey picked tea for me! LOL - toon on the way...
I know the intentions were good.
I know too that had I not been feeling so shitty I might not have walked out but I did and glad.. sometimes it is best to walk away, for a little while anyhow.
You know to you they are just pennies - what ever - it was enough to trigger my mind out of what I was in and onto God and hope. So who cares if they were pennies or acorns!?
What ever it takes. xox <>< I am thankful for my faith- you have no idea! ❤
