It was one of those Steaming piping Hot days after a heavy downpour..
I felt I was the sizzler, Earth was preparing for Brunch
I was crossing the road, in a rush to reach the Morning Mass well within time..
As a firm believer in procrastination, I always start prancing around at 10.25 for a 10.30 am mass..

 ..Out of the blue, like a lightening bolt, Migraine hit me..
I couldn't breathe..was blinded with pain,  I tried to shield myself from the rays of the sun,
 the screeching horns right into my ears..
It was so intense that I was paranoid and wanted to be run over at the same time..

Those are times, when pain overpowers the desire to fight back the pain..
I cried..I shrieked..I think it was in my own head..cuz no sound escaped me..Confused and way out of balance I stumbled and crouched on the corner of the road..
I don't even remember if I was in a safe place or not..

and there it was..
a gentle invisible hands, caressing my hair..I felt as if it was holding me up, in an embrace...A hug enveloping me from the blinding sun and muffling the noise I thought was trying to kill me..
There was a rustle and all the trees on my path swayed.. for that moment I wasn't on the crowded streets..
There were no hurting voices...just the wind and a bird chirping away as its song soothed me..It flew in front of me..till I reached the church..

That day the mics in the church stopped functioning and couldn't be repaired throughout the duration of the mass..I found a seat with plenty of breeze and I heard the lady next to me..gushing about the sudden cascade of breeze..
The entire time I felt a comforting hug holding on to me..

The pain with lesser intensity restored after I reached home..Safely.
Some might call it.. a flurry of delusion,shot by my brain as a defense response to migraine..but this has never happened before..others call it miracle or personification of Ma Nature..

All I know, that it was something that triggered..when for a brief minuscule moment..
I wished to live..
Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. ^~^
C, Thank you for this . . .

And you really need to be careful about your health!!!

I hate migraines. They come on so fast and totally level a person. I hope you are doing much better now!! It seems like everything is intensified 100 times during one of those migraines.
