Bigger than me day

The last few days I have been getting a bad cold, last night it seemed to go deep into my chest and by morning I knew that I had pneumonia again. My chest hurts so bad and my breathing is very labored. I was able to get a hold of my wonderful DR back home and he too thought it might be pneumonia and called in a prescription for me. Hopefully it should get in by tomorrow morning.

I wondered what I could do because I had to speak tonight. I stayed in bed all day, only got up to say good bye to my kids when they left to go back to college ( in Idaho ). Man, I was a basket case. I cry normally because I always miss them but today was different, I was sick and wanted them to stay with me. I don't like being this sick away from home.

I prayed that I would be given the strength to be there tonight and present the message that I had prepared. It went ok, but definitely it wasn't a good as it should have been but...I was soooooooo sick. Everyone was kind and said it went well but...  I think differently. I do hope though that someone walked away from there with more hope, faith and strength, even if it was one person, it would have been enough. And as always, I was more than grateful to be with such incredible women ( and men ). Many of my family and friends came too so it was wonderful. I only wished I had felt better to enjoy it more.

I need to try to sleep, although I can't breath well and usually that doesn't help bring sleep on.

Good night dear friends, I pray you are well and happy?
