Took a huge step for me

Wow today I stepped up and did something for me! Yep I said me.. I surprised myself.

I have been struggling with me lately. Who am I. I am a wife, mom, grandma, care giver to my parents and two furr babies. I have always taken care of everyone just happens.

Latetly I have been struggling with me. I live in chronic pain from a failed (several) failed back surgeries. I have a spinal cord stimulator that was not working right so part of it was surgically removed. Major bummer that I think sent me into a funk.

I still have to deal with all of home life and bringing up mom and dad. Yikes I need off.

Today I went to small group and met the nicest ladies who share the some of my challenges. Caregiving of parents! Now I have never been a real church going girl. I pray and believe in Jesus. I don’t attend our church regularly, but I love it when we attend.

I can still be the same person, like Miranda Lambert sing ” Jesus drinks wine” I love wine! I felt so happy with these ladies today and yes I left the wine at home. They were there to give support to us without judgement. I love it.

Did I say I have never done this before. Well I will say it again. I felt a sisterhood I never felt before. I will keep you posted on the journey to find me.

What journey have you jumped into lately?
