Not Right

My body is broken
It doesn’t work right
Is it because of disease
Or are the genetics not right

My mind is out of order
It doesn’t work right
Is it chemicals flowing
Or is the brain just not right

My heart is wrecked
It doesn’t work right
Is it just bad heartache
Or is the muscle not right

My joints are not moving
They don’t work right
Is it the stress I’ve placed on them
Or is the bone not right

My life is in the balance
It is not working right
Is it a bug in the software
Or is the hardware not right

Happy and Grateful – Day 39

This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself.  I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day.  There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment.  Please try to find those moments for yourself too…  if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog.  Being aware can really turn a day around!

I am so tired… chronic fatigue is hell some times.  I can sleep long hours and take naps and it still feels like I only got an hour or two of sleep.  It is very frustrating.  But in between my naps today I did get some things accomplished and the biggest one was at my Dad’s with the help of my boyfriend.

Ever since Dad had his hip surgery he has been unable to use the stairs to the basement (no hand rails for support) to make it into the only true shower he has.  We had set up a temporary shower with a hand-held shower head in the bathtub upstairs for him.  Tonight we mounted the hardware on the walls to make it a more permanent arrangement.  I am happy it is done so now I don’t have to keep replacing the Command hooks I have been using.  Now the shower curtain is hung on the wall with real hooks screwed into the wall.  Still doesn’t look real pretty but it keeps the bathroom dry.  I am grateful my boyfriend was able to help me get it done tonight.
