Someone Has a Sense of Humor

I belong to a women’s group and at the close of each gathering there is an opportunity to state any prayer requests. The usual issues are brought up, someone is sick, somone needs clarity in a decision. In November of ’06 I requested that they pray that I might have more patience another child later, it dawned on me exactly what patience is and is not.

More recently, during my husband’s outage early in November I requested rest, a respite for our family as we had been busy and I was tired.

Were you aware that like chickenpox, mono can recur? Yep, if you’re one of the lucky few, it seems a virus or simply being rundown can bring it on.

Remember Waynes World?

I once thought I had mono for an entire year. It turns out I was just really bored.

It was something like that, but in reverse. I’d start to get the kids ready to leave the house and two hours later I’d give up in disgust. I thought I was struggling with depression or just turning incredibly lazy.

For a little while life was cut down to the musts: children must be fed 3x a day, they must be bathed, and that was just about it.

Today I’ll be heading back to the gym for the first time in well over a month.

I understand completely.

I hope you are full of energy soon:) That is never any fun. I had it in HS and I was told that once it is in you it can effect you the rest of your life.

Glad you’re better. 🙂

The kids love the gift, by the way. Thank you!

Merry Christmas, Heather. I’m sorry you are so wiped out. I understand, too. I finally gave in, to this “cold,” yesterday. So much for that flu shot being able to help me not get a cold, too. As if I had a choice. I hope you feel better, soon.
