My Daily Struggle with Pain

This expression of what I am feeling daily was put together without collaboration by a wonderful, amazing and talented woman EJourneys.  It goes to prove that there are others out there that deal with pain on a daily basis as I do, maybe not the same type of pain but pain none the less.  If you would like to read up on her story or comment on her wonderful work, I have added her Bio and blog site below.

EJourneys cares for her partner and blogs on Caregiving.com.  In addition to being active on the site, she contributes to the CareGifters anthologies (edited by Trish Hughes Kreis), which help raise funds for caregivers in need.

How All This Pain Got Started. (Part 2 of 2)

No truer words have been spoken such as these,

There is always something to be

grateful for even when life is hard

and times are tough.
