Good Day, God!
A good good day for which I am thankful! And what could be more fun than to have a photo taken of me last night — that mostly doesn’t look like me! I’m enjoying pretending that I might look like this. I love it.
One excellent result that comes out of being sick is that one realizes (eventually . . .) that many of our “virtues” have more to do with the level of our energy than with our character. This is a truly humbling realization.
Yes, God. Yes, I have had this realization before. But I keep repressing it. Mostly, I have a fairly high energy level . . . which leads me to imagine myself as virtuous. A virtuous elf? Such an imagination.
Another reason for this being a good day is that I cut my jewelry class. This might not seem like a plus — but I don’t believe in all my years of schooling that I ever cut a class. I was compulsive! Even when I clearly should have joined my college roommate for lunch with her parents . . . I went to class. So, for me to decide I wasn’t quite up to a three hour jewelry class this morning was an accomplishment! And so was emptying dresser drawers (3 of them) and sorting through them — and not putting everything back in!
Such small and simple accomplishments, God. But, I feel good about them and I take that fact as a sign of my ongoing recovery from chronic overload. Thank You, God! Thank You so very much!
