Fridays I usually do a flash back of how far we have come.
This Friday is no exception, except we are only going back a week.
We have basically been in survival mode this past weekend and week.
“S” has been sick and we have been doing what ever we have had to just get through it.
We have battled fevers, baths, meals, and each other.
Sleep was rare, patience was thin and tears were many.
I have blown my grocery budget on take out and my child has lived on popsicle, fries and wonton soup for nearly 5 days.
(Cause it’s the only thing she would take.)
Two doctors appointments later and some antibiotics and finally the light at the end of the tunnel was not an on coming train.
(Although by Tuesday I would have gladly tied myself to the train tracks, cause surely it was easier than this!)
Nothing like your kid being sick to pull you apart emotionally and physically.
But what I did find through this all was my Inner ninja. 🙂
Hey yo, I’ve been high and I’ve been real low
I’ve been beaten and broken but I healed though
So many ups and downs, roughed up & clowned
We all got problems, but we deal though
I’m tryin’ to do better now, find my inner peace
Learn my art form, and find my energy
When my backs on the wall, I don’t freeze up
Nah, I find my inner strength and I re-up
Here we go, I know I’ve never been the smartest or wisest
But I realize what it takes
Never dwell in the dark cause the sun always rises
But gotta make it to the next day
It’s a feeling that you get in your lungs when you run
Like you’re runnin’ outta air and your breath won’t come
And you (uh) wheezin’, gotta keep it movin’
Find that extra (uhn) and push your way through it
Nobody’s gonna see me comin’
Nobody’s gonna hear a sound
No matter how hard they tryin’
No stoppin’ me since I’ve found
My inner ninja
