What’s so special about this Monday? Or any Monday, for that matter?
I worked from home. I had a lot to do. I didn’t speak to anyone. In fact, I worked straight through the day.
But it was a very special day!
Other than a short while in the morning after I woke up, I felt NORMAL. I had ENERGY.
I didn’t realize how quickly time had passed, how much work I’d completed, or how I didn’t have to take a pause and decide if I should take a nap or not.
Those things are a real rarity for me since my chronic health issues started five and a half years go. I’ve certainly had many good days since that time, but I’m always reminded during the day at some point that I don’t feel well. That I need to take it easy. That I need to compensate in some other way. That I am sick.
By the time 5 o’clock approached, it hit me what a special day it had been. And I still wasn’t tired! It was so exciting!
I’m still not sure exactly how that day happened, other than a lot of prayer. Nothing else was different leading up to it.
Sadly, I haven’t had another day like it this week.
BUT I HAVE HOPE.
Hope that I’ll have another day like it in the near future, and many more after. Hope that my body is healing.
And after struggling so long with all of these health issues, that hope is worth everything.
Here’s to my next Monday!
