I'm thankful I'm feeling better! Yesterday around noon, I swallowed and suddenly realized my throat didn't hurt. I was tired last night but had some energy to do a couple of things. This morning, I woke up at my usual time feeling much better and with lots of energy. I'm sure I'll need a nap today but it's nice to actually look forward to the day!
I'm always reminded when I'm sick how hard it must be to have a chronic illness. I get impatient about being sick after only 2-3 days; how much harder must it be to know that the pain and sickness will not be going away or it could be months until one feels better. It's a good reminder to me to pray for those I know with a chronic illness.
