l’m Sick.

“I’m sick.”

Never thought I’d have to write those words to explain why I didn’t write a blog post, or failed to keep a speaking engagement.

I guess there is a first time for everything.

Today I had to forego a speaking engagement at the annual conference of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. The first time in living memory that I have had to cancel any speaking engagement, anywhere, because of sickness.

This is the second week in a row that I can’t write an InSights & OutBursts blog post.

I checked my diary. I have not been this sick since leaving Brazil, where parasitic infections tended to knock out even the strongest of us at least a week once a year.

So, I should be praising God. “Thank You, Father in Heaven, for twenty-seven years of blazing health!”

Yes, that does sound better! And I need to remember, He is still in control and uses even sickness to develop me into the kind of person He wants me to be.

ThermoThe basics: I got the flu almost two weeks ago, (yes, I even had a flu shot) and for six days I had sore throat, fever, headache and cough. Then that was over.

But the fatigue kept on. No energy to do anything. Sleeping sixteen plus hours a day. Feeling totally wiped out, useless, no good, and a burden on myself and others. It might take another week to get fully over this. What a waste!

On the other hand, a couple of weeks of being “out of it” prorated over twenty-seven years of health works out to maybe half a day of sickness once a year. I should NOT be complaining!

Here’s hoping I’ll be back to blogging next week.

  1. Good to get connected once again as my daughter, now involved in the MAST program bought your book, “A Bonk On The Head” during a training time in Orlando. You are a gifted writer and appreciated.
