Feeling Somewhat Better

Well, I am feeling a little bit better. I still don't have a voice, I still can't talk above a whisper. I can't believe this virus has kicked my butt so hard. I haven't been this sick in several year. The girls have been so helpful and Dave has had to take time off to help me around the house. It is so weird to have to rely on others to help to walk from one place to another just because I am so unsteady on my feet. Monday night was the worst night. I thought I was going to die, I even made Dave make some promises to me concerning our family. He was really scared, as was I. At 1230am he called our Bishop to assist in giving a priesthood blessing. The Bishop came to help and was such a great help to Dave. I am so grateful for the priesthood, and the men in my life that are worthy to participate in such ordinances. I love my husband so much and I am so sorry that I scared him. I am so thankful for the Bishop and his willingness to get dressed in his white shirt and tie to assist my Darling Husband in the middle of the night, and to give Hubby a blessing as well to help him to cope with whatever was going to happen and to even give him counsel on our future.

There is something pretty amazing about the priesthood blessings we receive from worthy priesthood holders. When a worthy priesthood holder performs this sacred ordinance he is acting under the authority of our Heavenly Father. That blessing is a message directly from Him, and we are told things that we need to hear. These blessings are sometimes the most sacred messages we can ever receive. They can sometimes be messages of guidance, comfort, and healing. I have been on the receiving end of many of these blessings and each one has been different and each has helped me in that time of my life.

I thank my Heavenly Father each day for the blessings I have received in my life and have learned many things from each one. I have received blessings at the hands of my Daddy, my Darling Hubby, my Awesome Brothers, and even my Great Father-in-law, and other worthy priesthood holders. I am so grateful for those worthy to perform such priesthood blessings. I also need to thank the wives of those men who have answered the call for assistance during all hours of the day and night. Thank you!!

We've had that at our house too! I was calling it the St. George virus, but now I think I'll call it "The Mediterranean Virus"! It sounds so much cooler! I am really sorry to hear you have been so sick. With breathing such a big part of life, I'll bet you DID feel like you were dying! I agree about the power of the Priesthood and am also very thankful for it. Please continue to take care!! I'll say a prayer for you too.

P.S. Tonight is opening night for Aladdin! (the one i've been directing) Wish you could see it. It's really good! I'll give you highlights via email!
