I had my 2nd COVID-19 vaccine yesterday. I was grateful that I felt pretty good during the day to celebrate with my parents. However, last night was another story. I started running a fever and my body ached. I didn’t sleep much, even though I tried everything I could think of. I prayed a rosary, a chaplet of Divine Mercy, and any other prayer I knew from memory. I had put lavender lotion on my hands and feet. I turned my electric blanket on low to keep me warm. I took Tylenol along the way. I even listened to a guided meditation. I was able to catch a few winks here and there, but real sleep was elusive. This morning didn’t bring much relief, So, I hunkered down with a super comfy sweatshirt that my brother sent me a while back, and my super soft Grammy blanket that I got for Christmas. I was so grateful that we thought ahead so my sister was here to care for the household. Even while I’m feeling pretty bad, I’m happy that this vaccine is available to keep my parents and I protected. There is still much to be grateful for.
I Found God today in needed help and comfort.
