Yesterday, I woke up with so much joint pain - this usually results in not much mobility and a very cranky mood. As we had a school field trip, I pushed on and got ready for the day. Everyone was so excited about our field trip, and when we arrived there was so many opportunities to create memories with the girls. So I told the Enemy to get out of my way! No way was I going to be grumpy this day. And God provided. I had the strength to climb, lift up the girls, run, jump, and laugh. Another small victory, I made it to the top of the rock wall (sans safety rope). For those who aren't familiar with RA, it affects my hands and wrists the most - meaning gripping things, putting pressure, and basically any movement can be horribly painful. So, for me to climb that wall with the girls cheering me on, was certainly a victory.
Yes, my joints hurt twice as bad today. But I have yesterday's joy, the girls' encouragement, and God's grace on my side.
