Today's word is still.
Today was hell.
I'm dealing with more physical pain, and more just plain fright, than I could ever have imagined possible. To those who have ever been shot, it's like being shot.
To those who have had kidney stones, it's like the mother of all kidney stones.
But wait! There's more! (I've seen too many late-night infomercials.)
Bleeding from various places (and today, for the first time, the nose...yee-ha).
Nausea and vomiting.
And, just to add insult to everything else, incontinence.
But I'm still here.
This life means something. God put me here for a reason, and I'm not going to sabotage His plans by opting out of involvement, or, heaven forbid, opting out of life.
Still here, and they're going to have to come in over the wall to get me.
I have something to contribute. I have kind things to say. I have stray dogs to comfort.
And I am still bloody here, and if the devil doesn't like it, he can go and...treat himself unconventionally.
