My blessings.

Tomorrow I will get my third Humira shot. The shot hurts like hell, to be honest, but it has been life changing for me. I am not to a place where I can give the shot to myself. My friend, Jenny, gave me the first one, John did the last. This is me with my pre-shot jitters. Note the fake smile.

As I move through my day, relatively pain-free, I am periodically overcome with joy.  I am serious when I say that every once in a while I just stop and take a deep breath. I say a prayer of thanks. When lifting your head off the pillow and turning a door knob become excruciating tasks, a pain-free day is no joke.

I have so much hope for the future. There are many crazy ideas, of what I would have thought were impossible dreams, swirling around in my head. Now, it is time to move forward and make things happen.

Today, thank your body. If you are pain-free be super grateful. Life can change in a moment. Enjoy the moment you are in. If you have pain, find solutions if possible. And, me, well if you see me and I have a giant smile on my face, I am counting my blessings.
