I had so many plans for the past couple of days - rearrange the house; clean; prepare a few dishes for Shabbat in advance. But even though just two days ago I was a bundle of energy, yesterday I found myself down with something that seems like a virus or an infection - which will be checked today (I'd rather not go into details right now).
I found myself unable to do most, if not all, of what I'd planned. Last night, I couldn't fall asleep for more than half an hour straight, until finally at around 3 A.M. I got out of bed and started praying. For the first time in two days, the pain ceased completely and I fell asleep.
My dear husband has been so wonderfully supportive. He took yesterday off work and took care of me the entire day; today he went to work without complaining for being woken up several times during the night. Despite the pain and exhaustion, I feel so wonderfully blessed by his love and devotion.
No reason to worry about me, though - I don't think this is anything serious, and I hope that, Lord willing, it will pass. In the meantime, I will savor the good things - a clean, soft bed; a cup of hot tea; and the treasured knowledge that I'm loved and cared for. I will simply try to take things slow and make the most of each day.
I wish everyone a lovely weekend, and hope to talk to you again soon!
Mrs. Anna T
