I woke up with a migraine. The day so many of my friends were in one place, all of whom I was dying to see. The day I was to be photographed and recorded for a huge project that will soon be revealed. The day I was to take as many steps as I could in an effort to win a large sum of money for my favorite charity.
After a long, hot shower I made it to my shoot, but forced myself to skip out early for a much-needed massage (many thanks to my good friend, Audrey, for scheduling it for me). This, of course, was just what I needed to help insure that I made it through the day. And then another long, hot shower.
All day I pushed myself to enjoy the precious little time that I had to spend with wonderful people, in spite of how I felt. And all day I was truly grateful for good friends who helped me through my day with words of encouragement, bits of wisdom, and powerful prayers.
Although I missed the company of many great people today, I was truly blessed.
Perhaps this wouldn’t have happened so profoundly if BlogHer had not been interrupted.
