Do you ever feel like you want to give context and explain when people see you, in real life, why you have to use XYZ just to make it through the day? Or are you sometimes so used to YOUR normal that you don’t consciously remember all of your accoutrements and it takes a minute or two to realize why people are staring?
I don’t use medical tools for attention, and often I fall in the latter category of not remembering I don’t look “normal” right now, but it’s kind of hard to take all my necessary precautions without drawing attention of some kind when in public and around those who aren’t aware of my situation.
Thankfully today, it came from a sweet little girl who was kindly asking me questions and was interested in learning (and was a really good runner! I had to tell her, as she zoomed around the store). It was a moment of smiles amidst a way too long early afternoon at the Sprint store. This was snapped about halfway through our escapade today. Currently in the dark bedroom, lying flat and still, aside from typing this caption.
Thank You, Jesus, for the ability to leave the house today and accomplish something with my husband! And also, thank You for rest. And for being an example that we’re supposed to rest at times. And for me, one of those times is...now.
