Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 121:: finding beauty in the rain

2 May

Yesterday was hot, almost 90 degrees. Everything looked brilliant and bright (not to mention the incredibly, amazingly, wonderful news I received from my doctors too!).

But today was rainy.

The sun hid behind a grey blanket and didn’t want to come out and play.

Today my new breasts, which are just sacks full of saline hanging on the front of my chest, hurt. They cried as I weaned them off the pain killers. They throbbed so badly I had to remove the makeshift bra I bought to house them for the next few weeks and tuck it into my purse.

Grey days force a choice: either curl up in a blanket or walk in the rain.

Today, we chose to walk in the rain. And I chose to wad up my bra and go on without it.

Good thing too, because if you go down these steps….

You will find this:

And much more.

It’s a good reminder. Even when you hurt, it’s a good idea to walk in the rain. Because the most amazing sights can’t be seen from under a blanket or sitting on the couch.

More tomorrow.

{what choice will you make today?}
