Pain

Funny Body Pain Quotes. QuotesGram

Today was rough. A plethora of ailments keeps me in pain much of the time, but today everything was barking at once. I think if was mostly because of the changing weather patterns. It is cold/cool in the mornings and then warms up as the day progresses; couple that with rain, and I turn into a human barometer. I’m not going to lie; there were even a few self-pity tears.

I couldn’t decide if my knees and hips, the headache upsetting my stomach, or the lower back pain was trying hardest to get my attention, but they all acting like petulant children screaming, “Mom! Mom! Mom!”

I am not being too hard on myself today for my little pity party, because it is the weekend. I spend all week in my classroom plugging along, gathering inspiration from my students, and hiding my pain the best I can. I can figure out a way to keep moving, or I can let the pain win. Losing is not an option!

Time for a cup of tea and an early bedtime. Tomorrow will be better.

  2. This line: “like petulant children calling “Mom, mom, mom.” Pain is hard to bear. Tea and an early bedtime sound good. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

  3. Dear Rita,

    Pain can be so unforgiving! My heart goes out to you that it was emanating from so many places all at once. I salute you as you endure it so bravely while spearheading sharing that inspiration for precious children.

    I pray that your pain may subside and ease sooner than later and that it will be a distant memory in the near future. Thank you for your commitment to those little ones. I know you’re making a tremendous difference in their life, even when contending with the challenges of your own.

    With Warmest Regards,

    ~Carla Michelle
