Are You Strong Enough?

So…assuming I’m already a superhero…let’s talk about strength versus speed.  Would I rather be my same wimpy self and really fast about it?  Or would I rather be crazy strong and my usual self?  Hmm.  My energy level is finally getting back to normal after mono.  (If you didn’t know, check the archives or the tags because trust me last year was the year of THE MONO.)  I feel like I have a pretty good tempo at work, driving – check, walking – check, and when I’m hanging with the kids – I can keep up.  So, maybe speed is not a desire of mine.  Strength, though?  I wish I had many of them.  Physical, yes.  I need some more of that.  My arms are pretty sad and I feel like if I honestly NEEDED to use my muscles on a daily basis that we’d all be suffering.  My legs get tired fairly easily and actually, so does the rest of me too.  Emotional strength would be good too, since I have always been a sensitive, tender-hearted person.  It’s a blessing and a curse.  It usually keeps me from going off on people or saying things that I don’t think through first….but it sure makes it worse when someone does it to me.  I cry when I’m mad.  I cry when I’m sad.  I cry when….yeah, you get the picture.

Big News!!!

I think….I might….go back to work tomorrow!!!!  Probably for 4 hours only but I think I am going to bite the bullet and see how it goes.  Wednesday might be a good time to try as it doesn’t hold meetings or usually have huge deadlines.  I need to do some trip work and just plain catch up.  I need to see my peeps and get out and my rest time to active time ratio is finally on the mend.  Please pray!  I’m calling my Dr as soon as they open to see about getting the “okay”!  Ohhhh I am so hopeful!!!  Praise the Lord!!!  He always provides…
