When I think about my days, I see how it’s full of small delights. Little things that I accomplish.
I have mobility issues and I have long term effects of chemotherapy. All of these things limit me in many ways. It’s a bummer but I am learning to deal with it.
Making my bed in the morning is delightful because I can do it. It starts my day with one accomplishment. I always tell myself that the day will be full of little delightful accomplishments.
I love doing water aerobics and walking in the pool. I can do things in the pool that I can’t do on land. One thing is walking without pain. I hop, skip, jog and many other things and I’m just filled with delight. I can’t stop smiling because I’m so happy.
In the afternoon my fatigue sets in. The neuropathy in my legs will tell me “Hey, you are not a mermaid”, and the pain sets in.
But I will have small delights. Have you ever had fatigue? When you can’t stay awake and your body just shuts down. Well, I deal with that on a daily basis and crawling into my bed is such a delight. I take a pain pill and take a nap. Delightful dreams.
I will then help my daughter cook dinner. I can’t stand at the stove so I chop and supervise. Easy job! Then, I will be with Jalila eating dinner and watching a movie. Delightful evening.
Late in the evening I just watch TV and do my crochet. Prayer shawls need to be crocheted. I’m currently watching Picard and I just cry when I see the Next Generation crew together again. Tears of joy and sorrow because it will soon end.
Other days are filled with craft kits that my son has a subscription for me. Amancio knows me. Looking for hats on Temu is such a delight. Love Temu! Those are my days in a nutshell.
I’m grateful for my days. The good and the bad. You see, I’m grateful to be alive. All of my delightful accomplishments are wonderful things that I have done and will do. My awesome days are filled with little delights.
What are your everyday delights? I would love for you to tell me.
