Tonight sweet hubs and I decided to go for a walk. Our leisurely stroll turned into a 5 mile walk with dinner somewhere in the middle and an absolutely stunning view of the setting sun from the courthouse lawn. I am grateful for a short walk that turned into hours of holding hands, laughing and talking, exploring our little town and just being together with no distractions.
Today was a tough day. We have to fight with my new insurance to get them to cover the only medicine that has made my fibro even somewhat bearable. I am frustrated and scared that they will make me try a bunch of other meds (not more effective and not specifically for fibro, and with more & worse side effects) so they can save a few bucks. The thought of being in moderate to severe pain every day again is enough to make me cry. Additionally, we have been trying to get a family member into treatment for an illness that they have struggled with for nearly 20 years, and today the program that was suggested as the best option turned down the request for this family member to be admitted into the program. No discussion, no real reasons, just flat out denial. Talk about discouraging. I love this person and desperately want them to have the opportunity to turn their life around. Please say a prayer for those helping this person find a treatment that will work for them.
But despite the frustration and tears today, I am thankful for beautiful sunset that reminded me that even in this crazy world, the Creator gives us glimpses of amazing beauty.
Hope your Wednesday was more encouraging. What was your best part?
I also wanted to share this precious picture:
