An Unexpected Monday
On Monday morning I was taking my usual train commute in to work when something quite unexpected happened. The train was two train cars short so everyone was packed like a cattle car in to the few cars that were available. There were no seats which is a normal occurrence but things were extra packed and it was stifling in the train car. All of the sudden I got very hot, dizzy, and light-headed and tried to ask a man sitting if I could sit down. But, before I knew it I woke up and I had fainted in to the crowd of people also standing.
My Monday was spent at the hospital ensuring that I was okay and baby was okay. Luckily, since it was so crowded, I didn’t fall all the way down but I was caught and guided down to the ground gently. I did not hit or injure anything which is such a blessing. Another blessing? The man standing next to me on the train was a doctor; I know that was God watching over me.
While this experience was scary and gave me some anxiety, I had the support of Daniel the whole day. I called him once I got off the train and was about to get in the ambulance and told him where I would be. Less than an hour later, he had gotten up from sleeping and was by my side. I’m pretty sure my blood pressure lowered just from seeing his face at the hospital.
I Feel It Every Day When:
- You drive me to work on an icy morning so I don’t slip and fall
- You drop your day’s plans and show up by my side when I’m afraid at the hospital
- I’m sick and tired and you make me the foods I can stomach
- You Tell me I’m beautiful and that you love me every single day
So yes, Monday was unexpected and pretty darn scary. But boy, did I feel the calm assurance of the man who is always by my side encouraging me and loving me no matter what. I’d count that as a beautiful Monday after all. <3
