Body slammed is how I explain what a no energy and painful morning feels like. Kind of like chronic illness picked me up and slammed me down with no mercy.
That was my experience yesterday morning and has been several times in the past few years. The kind of fatigue that just sitting up can be exhausting. Living with chronic illness can wear on a person and get a person down, so if I have a bad day, I try to stop to say what I am thankful for. So here are some things I am thankful for.
I am thankful that I can pray and ask for strength. Once I got going, it eased up, but getting going can be the hard part.
I am thankful I have this afternoon and evening free to rest and hopefully do some more writing.
I am thankful that I can blog and have freedom to write about my faith.
I am thankful for the wonderful bloggers I interact with.
I am thankful I will see the moms in my class this morning.
By being thankful, it helps me to not go down the path of despair as it says in Isaiah 61:
” and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair”
