This is a post I'd probably like to revisit. Right now, I can't do it much justice, but maybe we can converse a bit about your ideas on this topic.
Are my occasional migraines a blessing to me?
I waited too long to eat this morning, then sat at the computer too long. So, I've got a touch of a migraine. Or something. I took some Excedrine for it, but it's lingering a bit.
However, I've discovered that when I get a headache like this, I feel kind of ... slow. And I sort of feel more vulnerable, a bit closer to God. I also wind up feeling a great desire to just BE with my family. Not doing anything in particular, just BEING.
Now, I'm off in a few minutes to fill in for Travel Man at basketball practice this afternoon, so I'll be with the girls during that time, and then I think we'll just have a quiet dinner and some snuggles before they head to bed. But I'm wondering what it is that typically gets me in this mood whenever I start getting a bad headache. Is it God telling me to slow down (and forcing my hand a bit)? Or am I just more aware?
Do you ever get to feel this way when you're under the weather?
