Days 497 - 499

Post date: Nov 22, 2017 2:57:21 AM


I spent the last two days in bed with a cold. Reading over my last posting, it's easy to say I wasn't feeling well. I even stayed home from church. I think I slept 14 hours straight, both days.

When I wasn't sleeping, I did some genealogy. Luckily, genealogy is easy when people want to be found. I started with 40 names to submit and after 2 days had over 500 names to submit to the temple. I was amazed at all those who have come before me have done. It hurt to see their loss and heartaches. I'm grateful for the opportunity to connect families.

I'm sure they had lots of bad days too.

I did something rather amazing, I think. I didn't go to church, but chose to sleep. I called in sick to work on Monday, and just slept. I took time for myself to heal and get feeling better. The trouble with getting sick is I don't eat and then my blood sugar gets all wonky. So on Tuesday, I was still a bit off.

The world will continue to revolve, even if I'm not there. If I want to be the best I can be, I have to take care of myself.

Take time to love and take care of yourself. Taking time for yourself is important.
