DINK #119 My Momma “Done” Told Me There’d Be Days Like This!

It’s the hot flash thing again. I just can’t help myself. It’s such a bizarre thing to be sitting in a very cool air conditioned room and then all of a sudden be drenched in sweat. For some reason, I thought with all the herbs and meds I was taking that I would just leap over this fact of life with nary a backward glance….but my mom told me there’d be days like this.

I did make her laugh today during our phone call when I walked outside in my summer shift to pet our cat BunBun only to immediately have a hot flash as soon as I sat down on the sidewalk to pet her and so of course BunBun weaved back and forth between my legs leaving a thin layer of white hair stuck like magnets to my skin.

All in all though, today was a wonderful day. I’m not letting the fear of not having steady income flowing in right now freeze me in my tracks. I’m doing my one percent and leaving the other 99 to my higher power to handle. I went outside this morning to take 30 minutes of quiet time and between the singing leaves of the Cottonwood tree and the sun peaking through the floating clouds I was whisked away only to come to my senses an hour later. I’m storing up in case of stressful times down the road. Filling my tank up with the spiritual nectar of peace so that if and when things ever get harried in my life at some point, I’ve got reserves from which I can reach into.

So, yeah, sometimes the simple tasks of life are a pain in the behind such as trying to dry my hair after washing it in the morning without causing a complete sweat breakdown. Today I felt like I had just finished running a marathon. I could not get my hair dry…..granted it is longer than its ever been and Austin has felt like 80% humidity—-so that my bangs curled every which way no matter how many times I threatened them with the straightening iron. But in the real scheme of things, these kind of setbacks are chump change compared to some of the trials that I’ve had in the past.

I guess I’m thinking of this time in my life in this way, momma always told me there’d be days like this and it really is great fun when we can both laugh at these things together.
