Feeling Like A Whiny Baby but...

I haven't been feeling well since Friday afternoon.  I thought that if I drank a bunch of water it would help, it didn't.  I took Tylenol, it didn't help.  I've slept for hours on end, eaten a decent meal and even had large cups of herbal teas, it hasn't helped.  And so I feel like a whiny baby.  I want attention to be paid to me, to be waited on hand and foot.  I want to rest my head on my husbands chest for a moment, maybe even be hugged.  And then again I don't want anyone close to me.  How's that for being wishy-washy?

The problem is that my body aches.  It hurts, at moments, to touch my hair.  Yes, my hair.  The same hair that needs the prompt and adept attention of a stylist.  But if I can't touch it without feeling pain then no one else will either.  One minute I'm hot, then I'm cold almost as if I were standing outside in this wonderful winter weather we are having.  My bones creak and pop when I move.  There are some spots on my skin that hurt even though there is no visible trauma.

I have peaks of energy.  I can sit up for a while and then I feel, nope, I better lay down before I fall out.  This morning I could barely walk upright but I pushed through it so that I could make sure I had something to eat.  Now these aren't complaints if you thought they were.  They are just observations because while I sit here on this laptop, fully aware of my surroundings, in my right mind and am able to communicate there are others that I know of that can't do any of this.  Some are so sick that they are literally dying as I type this.

So you know what, I can't complain.  I refuse to complain because it could be worse and there was a time when it was worse.  Even though people don't always have to be suffering from an illness before they will pass away from this earth, I would like to believe that I'll see tomorrow.  There are some who are holding on to only a few more minutes right now.

So I pray peace and comfort to anyone experiencing pains right now. Whether it be from a small injury to old age or something more serious such as recent surgeries to cancer.  I hope that you can find something pleasant and redeeming to think about in the very hour that you might feel your worse.  I hope that you have hope and I hope that you have support, love and understanding from those around you.

Peace and Blessings.

Happy New Year! ~2015~

I know.  I'm late.  More than that I've been seriously slacking on keeping my blog current even though on numerous occasions I said I would come in and write.  Not that I haven't had things to talk about, just that I haven't been diligent in talking about it here.

So everyone is now a year older.  One kid even left the country to go to Germany.  Another will be getting married in April.  One is already married and the other is in a relationship.  And that's a big deal if you know all of them personally.

Looking back on the year it was filled with big ups and big downs but the Lord saw us through it all.

My job is even more interesting than when I started, which is a good thing.  I haven't resorted to many practical jokes on my co-workers because they keep me busy.  My boss is awesome, my co-workers are awesome.  Don't get me wrong, there are still days when I'd rather sleep in than go to work, but as jobs go this one is a keeper.

I reconnected with childhood friends on Facebook, got to see friends that I hadn't seen in a while and I'm making new friends, which I didn't think that kind of thing happened at my age.  I'll be 45 in April.  Whoa, typing that out is shocking because I still can't believe that I'm already 44.  I'm still insisting that my loved ones buy me that Mustang I've wanted since I was 18 yrs. old.  Not holding my breath that I'll get it but the very obvious hint has been dropped.

Anyways, I hope that your new year has started out well and I hope that as you read this things are good for you now.  Peace and Blessings to you.
