Little Blessings

It's just the little things that seem to make me happy in life; a warm good morning from my husband, a special hug and kiss good morning from our son, being around my family, being around my friends, receiving a call just to say hi, a smile to feel acknowledged, a hug to feel loved, a friendly text or email to feel remembered, and a beautiful house we made a home!

Don't take anything for granted.  It's hard not to feel that way when you're not feeling your best, but you need to look around and thank God for what you do have in your life.  I'm very blessed that I have so many people who care about me and who I care about, that make each day brighter than the day before.

When you're feeling pain because of your Dystonia, acknowledge who's next to you and thank them for helping you today.  Thank them for being the hands that cut your food for you when it was too painful for you to do it yourself, thank them for canceling plans with their friends and stayed by your side on the couch when you weren't feeling your best, thank them for being the arm that you needed to hold your hair back when you're getting the injections in your neck, and thank them for the times when they took the time to listen to you complain about what you're going through and cheered you up by wiping away your tears and holding you when you needed it.

God has put all these people in our lives.  We need to thank them and let them know that we appreciate all the help they give us.  Botox does mask the pain, so at times it's easy to forget when we needed that help from them prior.  We need to always give thanks!!!!
