I'll tell ya, this whole allergic reaction thing has been a force to be reckoned with! I've been closer to insanity in the last couple of days than I've ever been. Since the first of the year, or Christmas really, my life has been anything but normal, and I really had high hopes that this week would find itself in a new season of normalcy, and then, duh, duh, duh (insert that storybookish sound of imminent danger)...
the allergic reaction!
But, I'm hopeful that a full recovery is just around the corner. Praise God! Thank you for your prayers.
This morning, as I was watching a Today show segment about how to have long hair when you're old (don't ask me why I was watching a segment on hair. You'd think I'd be over it!), and drinking a cup of coffee in my sweat pants and T-shirt, I thought, "My goodness! I am one blessed woman!"
I quickly started thinking about how much I love my husband, Brian, so much! Y'all, that man has bent over backwards to treat me like a princess, and to make sure that I have a very blessed life. I thought, "Wow! It is so nice to be able to stay home and rest and recover and not worry about a thing right now." He just takes care of it. Everything.
To me, Brian is my greatest asset on this earth. We are polar opposites. He is everything that I'm not, and then some.
However, he would've probably given me away to whomever would take me in the middle of these last few nights as I scratched myself uncontrollably. An itching problem is lethal to sleep! And, lethal to kindness (on my part, not his).
Anyway, just pondering God's perfect provision when He gave me that guy. Without him, I'd be in a mental institution after this week's allergy episode.
Thank you, Lord, for intricately weaving every fiber of my life. May I be a beautiful tapestry for You!
