I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely. We had a full house of my kids and their spouses and kids. I did very little. My husband cooked the turkey and everyone else brought yummy food. It feels weird not being in charge of things. But the truth is, things still work out just as well as when I was in charge and working myself hard. Ain’t that great? I am definitely thankful for that.
I have been thinking a lot about courage ever since someone sent me a get well card that said courage is sometimes manifested not by sticking to your guns in the moment, but by saying, “Things will be better tomorrow.” That’s what I keep telling myself. Perhaps that is patience instead of courage, but I like to think that I am brave as I go through this. A few days ago I had about 2 seconds where my vision was normal and it gave me great hope and comfort. Then this morning I got up and did not notice any visual distortions for about an hour. However, I’m not sure if that was because I just didn’t notice the distortions, or if they were actually gone! I am telling myself they were actually gone, but I must say that this blogging session is very visually challenging (double vision, blurry vision, pain). So now I tell myself, “Things will be better tomorrow.”
