Some days you won’t get anything done. You can focus on the negative. It’s incredibly easy especially when the flu is involved. Kids’ fevers at 104°. Fear of hydration. You forget how precious water truly is. Drink up. Wash your hands. Work. Work. More work. A seemingly never-ending battle with influenza.
How can I think of work when an invisible enemy attacks so suddenly and without remorse. That is the hardest part of all. No one to blame.
But would assigning blame soothe the pain? No—push the negative thoughts out. This virus is infecting, not my body, but my soul.
All things do end up leading to the good. Pain when embraced openly and in service to others leads to a bigger heart.
So if you are experiencing anguish this Friday, I pray you look inward. Inward to yourself and beyond. To the inner Spirit from above. Serve others. Serve them well. You and I will make it through this struggle. Maybe telling your story is all you can do. It certainly seems to be today so true.
How is your Friday going? How do you manage work and family obligations when sicknesses are involved?
