I've been sick

Having an intense cold the last several days, as well as the sorest of sore throats I've ever experienced (as in, every breath and swallow is excruciating), has served to give me just a little more understanding of Christ's sacrifice for us on the cross. It is a terrible thing to not be able to breathe. Oh! to have such a God... Who would choose to die by suffocation!

The above-mentioned illness also kept me from completing many of the tasks I hoped to last week. I am trying to catch up right now while being "on the mend", and attempting to not work myself to the point of being bedridden again. Everything starts back full-force this week, including the huge project of our after-Christmas performance with my Religious Ed Program. So, needless to say, and despite how much I would love for it to be, blogging is not at the top of my list right now. My after-the-twelve-days-of-Christmas-return might not be for another week...

Please, pray for me... I need it right now.

So sorry to hear that you're sick! It must've come on pretty quickly, you seemed fine when we talked the other day. As soon as I read your post I offered up a couple Hail Marys for a speedy recovery! :)

Your bosom friend,

Your goddaughter, Amanda said...

Hope you feel better soon! I'll pray for you! Oh, and Merry Christmas! I just realized that in all the phone calls to Veronica, I never once wished you a Merry Christmas.

Thank you, Malori and Amanda. Malori, talking with you the other day was good because it helped keep my mind off the sore throat, which was very much present at that point, but talking hadn't yet become difficult like it did over the weekend. :)

Merry Christmas to you too, Amanda. :)

Thank you both for the prayers.
