Blessings #AugustMoon13

Sometimes we get too caught up with life's circumstances. Count the blessings you've had to be grateful for this year.


Pain backs me into a corner.  I sink to the floor using the wall for support.  My head rests on my knees as I hug myself tight, an act of comfort that does anything but.  I know this space . . . this corner with my name etched into the stone, still bloody from the last time I clawed and scratched at it.  Fear holds me here, whispering harrowing tales of where Pain has taken me before

Linking up with August Moon.

    1. I think we're all prone to go there. I'm a pessimist and a cup is half empty type so prompts like these by August Moon 13 definitely make me appreciate what I have.

  2. I, too, have an understanding husband, especially when I grapple with the ins and outs of fibromyalgia flare-ups. We both sound lucky that we've found kind and understanding men.

  6. your post moved me Kathryn. I feel for you.
    I am grateful for silver linings. I know it's a cliche, but there's a reason that sayings become cliches, there's truth in them!
