Thankful Thursday - I'm Still Here!
Thank you to those of you who have been concerned regarding my absence from blogging. I truly appreciate your prayers, emails and cards.
The last month and a half has been too busy for one who has chronic illness. Every day has been an appointment or visit of some kind. I love living in the country but it does have it's negatives as well. For one appointment it can take up to 3 to 4 hours between travel and appointment time. I have also been driving myself and that can be stressful as well. As some of you know, I had not been driving for over 6 years until this year due to my health and side effects to certain medications I had once been on.
When one has chronic illness like fibromyalgia (as well as other illnesses) you cannot keep going day after day. We have to have a day or two in between busy days to rest. So I have to say that my body and mind are shutting down. I have not been able to concentrate enough to write on my blog. By the time I get home I am literally drained.
I am thankful that God has given me the strength to continue on each day. Although I believe He along with my body are saying "Slow Down!". So pray I can schedule my appointments and days better so that I can have the strength to do things at home as well as blog once again. For I do miss you all. Blogging blesses me beyond measure.
Again, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I miss you all dearly. God bless you.
