One of my favorite quotes comes from my daughter,Tarah,” It’s just a day.” What she means is, simply if you are having a bad day, it’s just one day. It will pass. Tomorrow may be something completely different.
Well, the last couple months, I have to admit I have been in a lot of pain. Not fun! But today I felt like the dark clouds were lifted and felt nothing but sunshine.
As I ran the streets of my neighborhood with Kipper, my running partner at my side, I almost could hear Tarah’s voice,”It’s just a day.” Yes, but today is a good day. With each step I wondered why is today different. I mentally reviewed my list.
-Was it my 9 hours of sleep?
-Is it that I started running again?
– Was it the B12 injection for pain?
-Is it my “happy playlist” on my phone?
-Was it the walk on the beach last night?
-Is it that the stock market is having a banner year?
I looked down at Kipper and commanded, “Kipper home.” As we trotted home I thought, It’s just a day but today there are no red cross-out lines across my page but a gold star next to my name. I looked at the sky and said, “Thank you God.”
So this is me, no filter, no worries, and yep, no husband YET ( It is coming! LOL.) I am trusting God’s plan, through pain, topped with a heaping pile of hope. God has us day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment. It’s just a day.
“This is the day that the Lord has made . We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 TLB
