Words of encouragment...

This past week I have been in bed...truly for almost a full week...well, 5 days, but it still counts.

I had one of the IVIG treatments that I receive each month on Monday.  These treatments are working and are helping reduce the crazy symptoms from this neuro disease that my body has, but they have some lovely side effects...primarily migraines and massive body aches.  It's totally fun...I hope you can sense my sarcasm. 

Spending an entire week in bed, even with a Tempurpedic, is not fun.  I actually figured out that your body and back can max out on Tempurpedic cushioning.  Maybe my spine is too straight now. 

My sweet husband has done a fabulous job of taking care of me, mainly by taking care of our house and dogs while I slept and slept.  I'm so thankful for him.  So thankful.  And blessed.  He's worked hard to make me smile and keep me laughing, even if it was only momentarily, before going back to sleep with a rag on my head.

Most of the time his simple, "I love you" and, "We will get through this" are certainly enough, but when Josh isn't here or his encouragment just isn't enough, I have to cling to the verses of the bible that wrap around me like a hug from Christ.

Just in case you need a hug are the words that I have led me through the dark days.  Maybe that's a bit dramatic...through the past 5 days, in bed, with the curtains closed. 

And a few more to make you smile (they made me smile)...

Happy Friday, Loves!
