The princess & the pea…

Welcome, lovely to have you drop by, please enjoy your choice of a cuppa & a treat of deliciousness as you linger while joining me in a time of sweet reflection today…

Childhood stories...

My daughters had this endearing name for me between themselves from childhood after they had heard the story of the princess & the pea. As I have always had muscle, scalp, skin tenderness & sensitivity over the years.

Where I literally could feel a tiny lump through a mattress while sleeping upon it, long before I was diagnosed with Autoimmune conditions…shared in my reflection Focus

One of these conditions, Fibromyalgia, has interestingly been nicknamed, The Princess & the Pea condition!

Today is such a day, when the tenderness & sensitivity of muscle & skin is amplified…as I have caught a cold virus & thus because my immune system has gone into warfare against the virus.

Sadly the casualties are being measured in the amplification of symptoms in the autoimmune conditions I already have…to the point, that even wearing my softest clothes is painful…

So diverting my focus off the pain to the blessings I can count…I’m grateful for the following…

An amazing sweet relationship with the Creator of the universe & His Son Jesus…

“Casting all my concerns upon Him, for He cares for me…”

1Peter 5:7

A warm home & bed, as it is freezing outside. For my all time favorite hot cuppa this morning which is lovely & comforting.

A husband who is loving, gentle, caring, supportive & such a blessing…You can find out more by clicking on one the following highlighted texts…

Until next time dear friend…

  2. Oh, I am so sorry that you have been hit with a virus! I know too well how that fibro sensitivity becomes unhappy with anything else that our body must go through. What a blessing to look for the things which gratitude stirs up in our hearts right there though. Our Lord brings us such mercy there! I am praying for you tonight!

  3. I pray that you are feeling better now, Jennifer. I have a friend who suffers with fibromyalgia. I often wonder if I have a small dose of it myself. I’m glad you are taking care of yourself and listening to your body. May God bring healing and hope today to all who need his touch!

  4. I know several people who have fibromyalgia but I’ve never hear it referred to as the Princess & the Pea condition. It’s so fitting, and I know so many lovely women who suffer with this. That makes me think of them in a whole new light 😉
    I pray you are feeling better and getting relief with your awesome tea concoctions!
    I’m so glad you stopped by to share this week at our Encouraging Hearts & Home blog hop!

  5. Jennifer, it is always refreshing to stop by for a cuppa with you. I’m sorry you’ve been hit with a virus. I hope you are getting rest and feeling better soon. I’ve been fighting something and am finally, after a couple of weeks, able to get back to some of my regular activities so I understand the need to stop. Seeing your title reminded me that my oldest daughter wrote a play about the princess and the pea story and she and her three sisters acted it out. I think we even recorded it. That was years ago. Such a fun memory you’ve brought to my mind. Blessings to you!
