With all the germs coming in and out of my house, it was bound to hit me sooner or later. I really don’t get sick that often. Normally, when I do, I have it for two days or so, then I’m fine. This illness has been the most sick I have been in about 5 years. I got full blown influenza with a side of sinus infection—not fun!
Things I have learned from being sick:
- It’s hard for me to ask for help
- It’s hard for me to not feel guilty for laying on the couch in the middle of the day
- It’s hard for me to receive help when I don’t ask for it
This morning I got the nicest email from my wonderful friend and mentor Gail MacDonald. We sent her and her husband Gordon a copy of our book, and her words of encouragement to me spoke right to my heart. Sometimes words can be healing, and I am so thankful for her friendship, kindness and support.
So, for the next few days, I am mending, healing, and trying to soak up the love that others have poured out to me in such a kind and gracious way. I don’t know about you, but sometimes it’s hardest to be on the receiving end of things.
Taking it all in….
