A day like this is so special and I don’t want it to end. I may have had an allergic reaction last night, but today I have made it through a long ride and a ballet. My youngest niece was performing the role of Clara in the Nutcracker. I actually survived the entire day.
I may have extra pain and I may pay for it tomorrow, but it was worth it. Living far from my nieces and nephews, I haven’t been able to attend many things they were involved in. Two nieces danced today in the ballet and I was very blessed to attend.
It’s been decades since I have been to a Nutcracker performance and I have forgotten how much I love ballet. I could have watched for much longer. The music is so amazing, too. I forget how much I’m moved by music. My music career ended soon because of all my chronic pain and I avoid it most of the time.
I think it’s a grieving issue that I haven’t dealt with. There are so many things to grieve after becoming chronically ill. I really miss playing music, especially during the Christmas season. Hubby and I played often together and played many years before we met on our own. There are so many precious memories of those times.
Well, I spoke too soon. I’m getting a rash. Well, I’ll cut this post short and go take some Benadryl. I’ll have to finish this topic later.
