Ten Things I have learned from being sick…

I am so thankful that whatever seems to be going on with me does not seem to be too serious. It is more of an annoying kind of thing, and not  a life threatening thing. They have ruled out tumors and liver disease.  It has just disrupted my life, and it very irritating.  I have so much that I SHOULD be doing, and it is hard to do when I am sick.

I have learned a few things…

1.  My favorite saltines are Zesta.

2.  I like Diet 7Up more than Diet Sprite, but I do like Diet Sierra Mist a lot.

3.  No matter what kind of clear soda it is, I like it much more when it is slightly flat.

4. Laying in bed makes my back hurt, plus it is boring.

5.  I thought I liked the idea of the house being quiet and being alone, but truly it is only nice for a little while.  Then it gets boring.

6. My kids are loud. Even when they are trying to be quiet.

7. I am really not good at being bored.

8.  I am a control freak. I hate not KNOWING what is going on.  Because, I obviously think that if I KNOW what is going on I can fix it.

9. I forgot how much fun snail mail is.  A dear friend has sent me two actual get well cards.  They lifted my day.

10.  I have so many praying friends.  I am humbled. I know that the Great Physician is listening to our requests.
