Electrical storms are going to wipe out the Internet (perhaps forever). You have one day left to write about your passions: what do you want to say to the blogosphere in 300 words or less?
Feb 10, 2010. A day that could have changed my life forever. A day I have not even been brave enough to write about…until now.
For more then 6 days I had been experiencing THE headache of all headaches. Throw in bouts of dizziness, issues with word retrieval, falling down, and I was scared. Rush to the Doctor. Something big and bad is going on. Doc admits, we need to look for a brain tumour.
Time for an emergency CT. Hubby by my side, we head to the ER.
This pain, this event, the look in my Docs eyes, it shook me to my very core. My life didn’t pass before my eyes, but thoughts of my children, my Husband alone, did bring tears to my cheeks. Found myself a quiet place, knelt down and sent up a prayer.
Ping ping…CT test underway.
Pace pace…wait for the results.
The best possible news. I had gotten myself into a cycle of migraine pain that my body could not snap out of on its own. A few hours in the ER, a couple of IV’s and I could go home. CT scan. Normal.
Through this terrifying experience I have been blessed! I have discovered my true passion. It’s not the big things. It’s not just family, friends, food, blogging or travel.
It is recognizing the miracle of the little moments of every single day.
It’s in the giggle of my girls.
It’s the smell of my Hubby, discovered lingering on a sweater long after he’s gone to work.
It’s the unexpected coffee with a girlfriend.
It’s that last bite of brownie.
It’s every comment of love from bloggy friends.
It’s the feeling of sun on my face.
My passion, it’s all the little things, and I am grateful for every single one.
