Gratitude Challenge: Day 16 and 17



For the past few days I've been struggling with what I can only describe as exhaustion.  I can only trace it back to my surgery and the resulting anemia.  I'm grateful for iron, but struggle mightily in taking it.  Debilitating stomach cramps, back aches and nausea; make it hard to consistently take the iron that I need.

So for yesterday and today I am grateful for my bed, which I've not traveled far from and for books.  I love to read, have always loved to read.  I started my love affair with books as a 6-7 year old and never have a book out of reach.  I also have an E-reader (Nook) which has been a blessing, since I can order books online and never have to leave the aforementioned bed.

So for today, while not deep, it is meaningful; I am grateful for my bed and my books.

Head over to Garden of Learning to see what others are grateful for today.

I hope you have had a chance to recharge and recover, and that you are feeling yourself again soon! Fatigue can be so debilitating! I'm glad you could get a few days rest.

I'm praying for you and hope you feel stronger. Being able to rest when we are weary is a blessing.

I hope you are feeling better soon. And I also hope the iron builds you up quickly so you can be done with the side effects.
