Made the bed

Confronting the grief of chronic pain can come in small ways. Today I washed the sheets and made the bed.

It was all I could do to get it done. It was pretty much ALL i could get done. I didn't even the enough energy to take a bath. But our sheets are beautifully clean and soft. And that makes me happy.

Don't always look for big ways to fight against the grief - just make a simple goal and DO IT!


  1. I understand. Have a good sleep!

  2. If that was all you could get done that's OK. It is something you did and then you get to enjoy it. Happy sleeping!

  3. Sometimes making the bed truly is an amazing feat. I just ran across this quote from mother Theresa that you reminded me of: "We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love." (Sometimes small things with great love ARE great things!)
