Today is the first day I’ve felt like this awful disease has altered my life. I mean I know for sure our life is going to change in big ways over the next year but I feel like today is day 1. Up until yesterday I had full intentions of going in to work today. I had even planned on a light duty job so I wouldn’t have to do much. I mean honestly waking up this morning I don’t know what I was thinking considering going in today, but none the less I was looking forward to going. So many people complain about their jobs, but I seriously love mine! I love meeting new people everyday, answering the most hilarious questions that people have about their pets, but mostly my friends. We have great conversations and love laughing together. I wouldn’t even mind doing a fecal if it meant I could go back!
You see, I feel like we so often take life for granted. Dreading going to work everyday or going to the grocery store. I know I get so irritated every time I have to pay the electric bill because it’s so so expensive. Today I encourage you to look at your job and choose one thing that you love about it. Even if that is simply bringing home a paycheck. There are so many people in this world that would give anything to have a horrible job where they are treated awful and the pay is even worse. Just to have five dollars to buy a bag of rice to feed their starving family!
I am so blessed to be able to stay home, rest and take care of myself! I couldn’t imagine being a single mom going through this right now. I’m blessed that I don’t need to worry about where my next meal will come from or wonder if we will be safe sleeping tonight. I guess my message for today would be not to take everyday life for granted. There are so many thousands of people who would love to walk a day in your shoes!
