Day 192 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project was so much better than yesterday because I felt better and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Last night I was so sick I was ready to go back to the ER. No matter how much pain medicine I took, combined with a cold compress for my head and heat for my stomach, nothing worked. Misery is the only way to describe it. My poor hubby hated to see me suffer and was nearly beside himself. Finally I took two sleeping pills and fell into a fitful sleep. Thankfully, after one of the worst nights of my life, I woke up this morning, gingerly made my way downstairs and have been dozing on the sofa ever since. Practically pain free! That and having sunshine flood the room caused me to feel this dark season of illness will come to an end.
Another thing that gives me hope that I’ll bounce back soon is the outpouring of prayers and well wishes from you. There’s a line from an old song we used to sing in church that says – “Somebody’s praying, I can feel it”. I felt your prayers today. Thank you. I blog because I want to encourage and inspire women. Yet I’m beyond blessed because you do that for me in spades. Sometimes it feels like I’m sharing TMI about being sick, but dealing with challenges is real life. Being able to write about my experience in an authentic, genuine, transparent way makes me feel a true connection to you. And I hope it makes you feel as if you are getting to know me too.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose cygnet who loves blogging so much that I’d drather do it on my phone than miss a day (I’m still too weak to go get my laptop, so please excuse poor formatting) I’m encouraged that I’m building relationships with you- my readers. Wanting to post is such a great motivation to get well. I want to get back to my personal and professional life so I have topics to write about other than being sick! One of you responded to yesterday’s post with “You have a light that needs to shine.” Wow! So humbling. Talk about motivation. Makes that light at the end of the tunnel seem closer than it appears.
What challenges are you facing? Can you see a light at the end of the tunnel? Hold on and you’ll reach it.
Be savvy & chic,
