Finding Beauty Friday, the one where I leave

Happy Friday! I'm so excited that it's the weekend! As you read this, I will be at my BFF's house! I'm overjoyed to spend much needed time with her, and to see all of the rolling mountains and enjoy the Apple Festivals around her town! This little getaway trip couldn't have come at a better time. I know I spoke earlier this week about life throwing me a wicked curve ball.  That curve ball is Fibromyalgia. I've been fighting muscle pain for months now, and it was finally diagnosed earlier this week. Since then, I've had my Rheumatologist, Primary Care Physician, and a Physiatrist working on a treatment/pain  management plan. It's a bunch of craziness going on, but God knew this trip would be a saving grace for me! And, I had this planned already, otherwise I probably would've talked myself out of this trip. In my opinion, a getaway with my BFF and lots of giggles could be exactly what the doctors order!

The plan was, to write enough scheduled posts to cover the time I was away. I had enough to cover this week, but then I said, ah well, I can miss a couple of days. I know you guys won't mind!

I will be checking my email a couple times a day, so if you need, I'll be around. I should be back next week, and I'll have tons of beautiful apple orchard and Appalachian mountain photos to share with you!

As always, I join Aimee from This Darling Day  for Find Beauty Friday. Link up with us and share your photography skills!

This Darling Day


  1. Fibryo is hard to get diagnosed so glad you at least found an answer

  2. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I am glad you got diagnosed as a pose to not knowing what is wrong.

  3. Oh man! I hate that! I mean I'm glad you figured out what it is! My cousin has that. : \ It sucks to say the least. But God is in control. =) Great pic! xoxo

  4. Praying for you sweet, friend! BIG HUGS TO YOU! Enjoy your trip and time with your bestie! xo

  5. I've tried to post this before, but I had to login. Let's see what happens this time...I hope that you have a great time away. God bless you

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I empathize with you and can understand all to well how this can be a "curveball". My prayer is that you will find peace and help with the pain sweet lady. Just a thought but if you would like to connect with others who have chronic illness I would love to invite you to connect with a christian ministry I started for those with Chronic Health Issues. You can find the website Here: (www.seengathering.org) or the blog here: (www.seengathering.com) and the facebook group page here: (https://www.facebook.com/seengathering) Anyways... I am sending you love and hugs across the miles. I hope you have a wonderful time with your friend!! It sounds like just the perfect timing for your vacation!
