Kirkus Starred Review, Firstborn: "A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths." http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_xj7TKOA856M/SxBiZna9n7I/AAAAAAAABUw/GUS6tl4MXQM/s1600/bedtime.png

Living with Lupus: Day 73


Logo from this blog.


At Day 73, I'm able to look back to Day 50 and see progress! It is at a sloth's speed, and I'm still housebound, and I still crash, but I don't stay at the bottom of the hole quite as long. The next day I don't start at such a low position either. That is worth celebrating!

 
So what brings joy to the day? Bath bombs and rubber ducks. Special delivery Green Tea Fraps, Matcha Blast Jambas, oatmeal, and sweet tea. Sweet cards and letters. Laughter with friends and family. Netflixing The Office and Kindling books like Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning and Martin Luther's Bondage of the Will. Warm soup and fresh flowers. These are a few of my favorite things. :~)
 
Here's a smattering of wisdom from my recent readings:
 
"Satisfaction comes from the richness of experiencing life and sharing the inner experience of life with others." Rachel Naomi Remen
 
"He who has a WHY to live for can bear with almost any HOW." Nietzsche
 
"There is only one thing that I dread, not to be worthy of my sufferings." Dostoevski
 
"Suffering ceases to be suffering the moment it finds meaning." Viktor Frankl
 
"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him." John Piper
 
Onward!
