I have been having a tough morning. Laying in bed watching videos of Riley and crying. It is one of those days when I just can't seem to pull myself out of bed and away from this damn pity party.
When I am hurting, I read. I decided to start reading "If You Feel Too Much" by Jamie Tworkowski again. This book is my inspiration, my healing place. This time, I am skipping around a bit instead of reading it methodically, chapter by chapter, as I did the first time around.
The first chapter I chose was "Note To Self". On the second page of this chapter, I had this passage highlighted from my original reading. It's as if the words were put there for me to read this morning...
God wants me to wake up to this beautiful day. He wants me to remember that there is hope and that people need other people. That includes me. Today.
Thank you to the author, Jamie Tworkowski, for reminding me of this and for helping me to make the first and hardest step of my day...
