Breathe in, breathe out

Some days, you just have to put one foot in front of the other. Well, that's what I'm doing. These past few weeks have been tough. I'm not going to sugarcoat things and make you think my life is all roses because it's not.
I'm very restless with where I'm at right now. I want to be able to do more in physical therapy. I absolutely hate it when I don't have the energy to do my work. Some people think I'm crazy for having to lay in the bed and rest, but what they don't realize is I'm trying to recoup from the previous day's activities.
Each day, I try to remind myself that God gives grace for the moment. I'm so glad He has mercy on me, even on my weakest days when I'm a little too snappy about little things that shouldn't bother me.
No, I'm not satisfied with things right now, but I'm trying to be content. Oh, that is easier said than done, my friends. I know that even when it seems like I'm not getting anywhere, I am. If I can just hold on a little bit longer, I know I'll turn the corner. My prayer is this: "Lord, help me to be patient. When the work seems endless, help me to realize how much I've already accomplished. Most of all, help me to always remember to be thankful for where you have brought me from." Amen.

Thanks for letting me vent today. :) That was like taking a big sigh of relief because I know I don't have to keep everything inside of me.

What do you need to let go of?
