I have undertaken a challenge this year. I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel. No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment. Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day. Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog. Let’s find some fun!
I have fibromyalgia and some days it really has me good … or should that be bad? One of the symptoms of fibro is memory problems often referred to as fibro fog. Today was one of those days it was pretty foggy in my head and I managed to forget my morning pills. Didn’t realize it until later in the evening so it was too late to take them. So I beat myself up about it the rest of the night… add this to the headache the lack of meds can cause and it was a rough night.
But there is one “person” I can always rely on to help me out on rough days… my cat. What is it about pets that they can sense when we are down. She came into my lap and cuddled with me… she is not one to cuddle much. So my stress level went down and I stopped blaming myself for forgetting and let her purring take my headache down a notch. She made me happy. And I am grateful she was able to sense that I needed a cuddle. Love my (well, technically my daughter’s except she is in a no pets apartment) cat!
