Cherish Even the Normal Days

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.

The past month has been very difficult for me. There were days when I wanted to give up by resting my head and escaping my broken body. I was ready for the next life. As I told my doctor, I was going to have a frank discussion with my manufacturer about cashing in on my warranty. In late July, I experienced a seizure of unknown cause and once my health insurance begins, I hope to see a neurologist. Then I developed a urinary tract infection and bronchitis. Being sick for a month several times a year is not uncommon for me. My days were anything but normal and I regretted being bored on days I felt fine.

After this ordeal, the metaphorical fog has lifted from my mind and I once again can enjoy the breeze, cooler temperatures, and various colors as my part of the world transitions toward fall. My mind is willing and motivated to weed the flowerbed and tend the remains of the vegetable garden but my muscles and lungs are not. I’m holding on to this spiritual energy in hopes it will still be there when my body regains strength and I can enjoy a normal day. Really take it in one moment at a time rather than rushing around as if I must accomplish great things in the day or week were I feel alive mentally and physically.
