I found this on Pinterest yesterday, and just loved it. Stained glass really is a great metaphor for the spirit. I find Pinterest to be a great way of calming the mind when my body is letting me down. Today was the 7-day mark for my health tanking this time around. It’s one of my longest flares in a while, but I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel again. Knock, knock, knocking on wood as I type this.
I often wonder how long people can ride this rollercoaster on the road to recovery before they give up and stay in bed with the covers pulled high over their head. Its so exhausting coping with a chronic illness and with the mental fatigue trying to maintain a positive outlook requires. Its been 2-1/2 years for me. I’ve always been a bounce-back kinda gal but the pep in my step is definitely slowing.
I’m crossing my fingers and hoping tomorrow I can play with clay down at the Pottery studio and swim for only the 2nd time all week. Also trying to get to the craft store for a few things I need to get my spring centerpiece finished up. I did an update to the original post to show the midway point. Check it out if you haven’t yet. I added a few more tweaks today with one more til its a wrap!
