a healthy dose of perspective
I hate being sick, but sometimes it's a very necessary thing. This past Monday (memorial day) Rob and I came down with some mysterious illness that lasted ALL week. Monday was the only day I had a fever, but the crappy, I-feel-like-I'm-going-to-pass-out-or-die feeling stuck around along with a severe sore throat. And, like life is, I couldn't stay in bed all week so I had to go out and about my business anyway, feeling like I would collapse at any moment. I didn't realize just HOW bad I felt until today, though. I feel SO much better and actually have energy again. And the world is good again. All week I was stressing about getting my work done- namely, all the writing I have to do for my thesis, and how to take care of church callings and Max and keep the house clean. Today, I feel like I can take on the world. I have motivation, I have energy, and I have love (very important when you have a toddler). Now, all I can hope is that I can keep this motivation and not need another dose of perspective. I really don't have time to get sick again.
