Today, I Have...

Laughed at myself
all bundled up and still cold,
fighting as hard as I can fight--
the hardest day
I've ever faced
in all of my 30 years.

I have cried,
I have laughed,
I have shook,
I have shivered,
I have whimpered,
I have prayed.

I have smiled,
I have dreamed,
I have given up,
I have kept fighting,
I have fallen,
I have picked myself back up.

I have loved,
I have hated,
I have trembled,
I have danced,
I have tickled,
I have prayed.

Today, I have lived,
truly lived.


  1. Sending good vibes your way! If we were closer, I'd offer to babysit. It's gotta be tough to be home with the kids and sick.

  2. Beatiful Alyson. Simple words and yet profound on what you are going through. Lifting you up in prayer..

  3. Thanks, Courtney. You have no idea! It's hard having them here when I feel really bad, but when they're gone, I don't want to miss a thing!

    Thank you, Renee. It is amazingly comforting to be held in prayer today. I've really felt God with me all day.

  4. Keep on living! Love you!
