I'm happy to say that I am feeling MUCH more like myself these days. After three weeks of feeling sick and being unable to eat much, one bonus was losing 15 pounds. Another was learning to focus more on the things that matter. When you're not feeling well and you have to step back from everything, you more easily see what matters most. I had such wonderful conversations with my husband and son, and I'm so grateful for their love, support, and care while I was ill.
One negative thing is that my immune system is totally shot and so of course I got my son's cold. But I'm seriously so happy not to be sick in the way that I was earlier this month that I'll take the fever and sore throat!
Another negative thing that came out of being sick was the inability to do anything creative. Too sick to sit in my office and do much more than type on a computer, for weeks I wasn't able to do anything that was creative in nature. How I've missed it!
I'm so grateful to work in a creative industry that allows me to make beautiful things. Whether it's a card for a friend, a scrapbooking layout about my family, or something pretty to display in my home, it's a very rewarding job to have.
As I work back to a creative place, I just wanted to say thank you for all the love and concern that came from my online family. Once again, I just feel blessed to be surrounded by such amazing creatives.
