I Need to Take a Break for a Little Bit




Hello,
  I am feeling weary physically and emotionally from the battles of life right now. My blood counts are low, I'm hiding from germs at home, and I'm needing a lot more rest. The nurse has been telling me more rest. My husband has been telling me more rest. Now my body and emotions are telling me more rest.

  This last week has been hard in many ways that I won't bother you with. Some of you are dealing with tragedy in your lives in many forms. I pray especially for those of you in Harvey's path. Some are facing physical illnesses or diseases. I have faith. Right now I need to rest.

  I am going to take a break for a little bit. I'll be back and write a bit here and there, but I find I cannot keep up with all the comments. I read every comment, and I pray for every request, but it takes quite a bit of time to reply to every one. If you would like me to reply, please just ask me to and make sure I have your email. Otherwise, it's going to be very hit or miss for a bit.

  I've been so excited about getting down to my last month of chemotherapy, I failed to anticipate the cumulative effects on my body and emotions. So, now, I have to face it and endure it. I thank you all for being so encouraging to me through this and for praying for me. God bless you all!

With warm regards,
Laura
Even now, I will worship the Lord for He is good.

  5. Absolutely, Laura! You put on some comfies & rest! I don't know what you're feeling, but I do remember that post-surgery, the TV remote was too much for me to deal with!

    I look forward to your posts again, but not as much as I look forward to you feeling much better!

    Blessings to you, Laura!!

  17. Dearest Laura, rest. Rest until your body says you are well. Rest your spirit too. Sometimes it is okay to sit back and let support come to you, rather than extending it to others as I know you always do. Sending love and healing prayers dear lady. Mimi xxx

I know that chemotherapy drains your strength - my family is deeply affected at the moment - and the most important thing is for you to put yourself first. We'll be here when you are ready to come back. Blessings to you. x

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.
