…My picc line.
Whoops! I didn’t think about that.
Wait, “I didn’t think about that!”
That means, the antibiotics… must. be. working.
Lilli looks at me in amazement and says, “Mommy I’ve never seen you like this!”
As I flashed back to the athletic, fun, free spirited Sarah that had become only a distant memory, I said, “You don’t know me.”
Lilli says profoundly, “Yeah, you’re right. All I know is that you are always in pain; you have Lymes Disease. And… you used to have food allergies.”
Then I began to think. Who knows that Sarah? My family. My friends from California. My friends from Virginia Tech. Thankfully, my husband remembers her.
But, all of my friend’s here, my church, my children, they don’t know that Sarah.
Most people don’t really see me as sick, because they don’t have anything to compare me to. The daily pain, the weakness, the memory loss are easy to hide in front of everyone except my husband and girls. They see the real thing. But as easy as it is to hide my sickness, I can’t do most things that I once did.
My body sets limits, where at one time I felt somewhat invincible.
My dear friends and readers, will you please encourage me in Christ today?
I saw a glimpse of what I once was, and I yearn for my children to know her.
Will you please leave a comment below? An encouraging Word for me?
Thank you my dear friends and readers.
