Have you ever had one of those days? Well, I have had one of those months! I struggle with migraines. I know some people say it is just a headache, but until you have had a migraine or know someone really close to you who suffers from them it is hard to understand they are more then a headache. I know my triggers. I am very aware of what I eat, drink, the hours I sleep and the need to exercise to help with stress. But no matter how careful I live my life, the migraines still come. This month I have had more days with them then without. I take my medicine faithfully, to try to avoid this. I get up, get as much done as I can before they hit. When they hit I go into auto pilot to get me through the rest of my day. If I am lucky I might get a little nap in to help me make it. I can't just stop. I have two beautiful active girls who need me. I have student council, choir, 3 nights of ballet, gymnastic, Young Women's and activity days to get my girls to, and don't forget homework, play dates, date nights, family time, dinners, laundry, ironing, cleaning, and preparing lessons for my super cool primary kids. Life goes on whether I feel good or not. I was looking over some of my favorite blogs when I came across this amazing quote by Elder Holland. It made me realize I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me, He loves me, He knows what I am going through, He knows my struggles and when I feel I can't go on another day He lifts me up and I make it another day. There is happiness in the end, good things will come, I just need to take one day at a time.
