Kennedy shares everything with me…including her vicious stomach flu that she got last week. It’s been plaguing the two of us for about 10 days now. Just when you think that you feel a little better, this deep, intense pain in your stomach takes hold of you all over again. Food and sleep just don’t happen even if you REALLY want both of those two wonderful luxuries.
I learn a lot about myself when I’m sick. The biggest thing that comes to light is that I don’t slow down well. I hate not being able to do everything that I think I should be able to do. I push through as much as feasibly possible to the point of not allowing myself to rest and get better. This strategy seems to not be working for me this time.
That being said, I will not be preaching tomorrow as planned. On Thursday night when I was back to the beginning of not feeling well, I decided that I couldn’t risk it and gave Mark my Mother’s Day sermon. He’s never preached one of my messages before, but I know he’ll do a great job. It’s a good sermon, if I do say so myself!
Today I feel a bit better and have been able to get some of my stuff done, but I’m still glad that a major weight is off my plate! My husband is my hero! I look forward to Mother’s Day and enjoying the unexpected break that I will be getting!
