So Much for Starting Strong

The inevitable has happened. I caught a cold, a pretty mean one at that. I blamed Robby for my illness, to which he quickly passed the buck to our nephew Nathan. I suppose Nathan would have a finger or two to point, as well, so I'm just going to let it go.

How does something as trivial as a cold do such damage? I'm usually full of energy at the beginning of the year, ready to knock down cobwebs and organize desk drawers. I've done little more than move from one room to the next with my box of tissues in hand, and even that requires all that I've got. Christmas is half put away. It's pathetic: I've been staring at a bare Christmas tree for two days because I was only able to pack up the ornaments before this thing hit. And as much as I sing the praises for fake Christmas trees, they're a sorry thing to look at unlit and untrimmed.

Needless to say, I'm not starting off my year strong. Physically, I'm the weakest I've been in a long time, and emotionally I'm pretty spent too. Yeah, it's just a cold, but I still want to cry about it.

The only good thing is I have read my Bible every day. It's a comfort to know that although my flesh and heart may fail, God is my strength.

    1. Oh that sounds awful. Poor Anna. Poor you. Poor whole family! I'm hoping that's not what I've got...

  2. Jerry is sicker. Stayed home Friday and today. Whatever this is, it isn't fun. Hope you don't get the tummy part. At least you don't have to go to work this week. Loves and prayers for quick healing.

    1. Poor Jerry. He must be sick to miss work like that. Yeah, it's definitely a nasty little virus! But I'm on the mend, so I am positive I just had a normal cold, not like that monster version of one Kelly's family has and not like the one you guys all had, too. Hope everyone gets well soon!
