Be Thankful and Track-pad Mystery Solved

My body has been on a 24/7 tear for the last two weeks, and wasn’t doing well before that.  Yesterday, was a good day.  It was the first day that I felt I could do (and did) laundry.  I walked only with non-skid socks.  I had my ups and downs, but I didn’t take a nap.  I was tired, but I didn’t want to take one.

I was feeling slightly human for the first time in over two weeks.

At the end of the day, as my muscles started to seize, once again, I turned to my wife and said, “It doesn’t matter what happens with my muscles now, I was given a gift of today, and it will happen again.”

Many people live check-to-check.  I live moment-to-moment.  I don’t know when the moments are going to come again, so I max out what I can do in that particular moment.  My maximum is greatly reduced from what it used to be.  And, my ability level fluctuates wildly throughout the day. So, I never get to plan for what I can or cannot do.

It doesn’t matter what today is.  It will be as it is.  It is a gift, and I will live in whatever moment is given me.

Those in the IT realm that know me, have heard me curse track-pads.  I just figured out why I have so many problems with them…. my finger spasms.  I was playing Words with Friends and I can no-longer drag-and-drop with a track-pad.  I must have been having small issues for the last five or so years (based on other bits and pieces of evidence.)  My hatred of the track-pad was a casualty.

Until the next moment,

In Christ,
