I’m taking a risk to say this – because I was slammed with a snarky remark previously, but I’ve been sick since Thursday – searing pain in the throat, painful, deep cough, pounding head, etc. My husband was sick earlier, then I got sick – he left town Friday, and as soon as he drove off, I realized I couldn’t find my phone. I started to panic a bit, thinking I had left my phone in his car that wouldn’t be back for a week. I couldn’t call the doctor, or a friend for help if needed, etc. I felt so bad, I just went to bed. The next day I felt worse, but I was able to use facebook to shout out to my sons to come home and help. I received an unexpected outpouring from others – to bring me stuff, to come over and help, etc. That was nice. My son did come and started ringing my phone – which was eventually found in a very odd place – and he took me to the urgent care . Anyway – The phone was missing and after the first few minutes, I didn’t care. I was trusting God to take care of me, and He did. It makes me look forward to my two-day unplug that will come up in the next several weeks. and no – I don’t think I “allowed” myself to get sick. I think bacteria set up shop in my throat – yes-I’ve been under tremendous stress the last four months, and maybe that’s part of why I got sick. Anyway – crappy post, sorry about that.
