Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.
This has been a rough week. I got sick again and couldn't hold anything down. Ended up in the ER. Got sick again the next day. Ended up at my doctor's office. I found out I have another infection. I'm on more antibiotics. The doctor also said that they type of pneumonia I have can drag on and on and that I was still battling it. What was beautiful this week? Well, it was hard to see, but there were some beautiful things going on this week in spite of everything!
1) I found out when I was in the ER that there are some beautiful, healing professionals in our town. Not only are they competent, they are also kind and very compassionate. I was treated with dignity and respect, and I was given hope that, after feeling lousy this month, there is hope that I will feel better soon.
2) As much as I complain about insurance costs and the costs of the medications it takes to feel better, I am very grateful that I have insurance to help cover my medical costs and that my copay to see a doctor is only $20. I am also extremely grateful that there are medications to help me heal and manage my medical conditions.
3) Today, I feel good enough to torch. I'm going to shower and get dressed, then I'm heading down to my torch to make beads. It probably won't be for a very long time, but I will be melting glass. This is very healing for me!
