Things at home have been very hectic. We have all been sick, WH and DD and I passed around stomach bugs like we were playing “hot potato” and then upper respiratory infections. I felt like we were all typhoid Mary. Most of the time when I would get off work it was straight to bed. I haven’t bought groceries in weeks and thank God DD can do laundry and was willing to clean while mom was working. She has been a lifesaver over the past 4 weeks when she wasn’t feeling awful as well. It’s not been fun.
Everytime I got to feeling better and tried to jump back into life I would be knocked right back down and wind up back in bed. This has been going on for almost a month. I had to miss out on plans with friends and we weren’t able to go to church. It seemed to start a downward spiral.
Not only was my body suffering from illness but my spirit began to grow ill. Just like germs can gain a foothold and a stronghold over our bodies when our immune system is weak, satan can use our physical and emotional weaknesses to gain a foothold as well that can turn into a stronghold if we aren’t careful.
