There was a time when I didn’t have many friends. I remember praying for friends, praying for women that would speak into my life and women that I could hang out with, go to dinner or a movie or just sit and chat for hours. I am so thankful that the Lord answered my prayer above and beyond what I could ever imagine. This has been a week that I have truly been thankful for praying friends. I know they are praying for me, I feel it.
Today has been another day where I just haven’t had any energy so I slept all day. I got up early, did some studying and then laid on my couch to listen to a book and the next thing I knew it was 6 hours later. So much for my day! That’s kind of how my weekends have been lately. Lots of sleeping but this week has been the worst. I think I may have slept more hours than I’ve been awake. Well at least it feels that way.
So a friend invited me to dinner (where we ate breakfast haha) and while we were waiting on the waitress to take our order I was yawning. My friend asked me how I could possibly be yawning when I slept all day. I told her that I could go back to sleep right then and be happy. Then we got into a conversation about my health, my medications, my eating habits, etc. She suggested that maybe I should go see my doctor because maybe this fatigue I’ve been having is due to my medication or has a medical reason. Duh! I had not even considered that! My blood sugar has been lower than it has been in 10 years. I am a diabetic who was quite non-compliant for a long time, I hate to admit that but its the truth. Monday I will be making an appointment with my doctor and see what she says. Sometimes you just need a friend to point out the things that you don’t even think about.
Thank you Jesus for my friends!
