I'M BAAAACK!!!! (I Think)

I am so glad to be back in the blog world! I have been away under the weather since Tuesday. I came to work on Tuesday, stepped on the elevator and everything else was nothing more than a blur.... All I remember is ambulances, EMT's, being stuck in the arm with needles, and having a room full of friends and family at the hospital fussing over me. So I decided this time to take my doctor's and my mother's and others' orders and just rest and get a check up. This was hard for me because I absolutely hate going to the doctor. But I did, and now I am waiting on test results and waiting is not really my strong suit.

Then I had a thought, I think that we don't do that enough! Wives, mothers,and all women; we just don't listen to our bodies enough. We tend to push through the little illnesses thinking that the world can't make it with out us and then one day our bodies just say ENOUGH SILLY WOMAN YOU NEED REST!!! So, it shuts down and makes us depend upon the mercy of its healing time. At least that is my story. I still don't feel 100% not even 75% but I am learning that I must listen to my body and take care of me. Taking care of me doesn't me selfish. It doesn't mean that I don't love my family less. I finally realized that it means I love my family more, because I am doing what it takes to ensure that they are able to have all of me, versus parts of me. Just my ramblings for the day....

Be Blessed and Stay Encouraged-smfg
