"This illness is to fatigue,
what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

A Perfect Comparison

I read this on a website recently and it really hit home:

"This illness is to fatigue what a nuclear bomb is to a match. It’s an absurd mischaracterization."
~Laura Hillenbrand, bestselling author of Seabiscuit

Wow - what a great way to say it! I talk about being fatigued and even the most compassionate, loving people imagine I am being burned by a match - when, what I am really talking about is living through a nuclear bomb!

On the sad side of things... I have really hit bottom this week in fatigue. This means even conversations are a strain.

But on the more positive side of things, I have found another very easy art to do. It is called needle felting. It takes very little energy and I have even made two ACEO's this week! Here's one that's up for auction on eBay this week!

I can do these little needle felting designs easily while I listen to my audiobooks - I just received a George MacDonald and CS Lewis book from the library PLUS a couple of my friends have been passing around a good audiobook and it's my turn to listen to it!

Prayer requests? Well... patient endurance... and guidance in medical decisions.

Thanks for praying for me and checking in!

PS: If you want to know more about how I do these needle felted ACEO's - check out my art blog click here. Oh and BTW - just in case you didn't know - and ACEO is a miniature piece of art that measures 2.5"x3.5" , just like a trading card. They are very collectable!

  1. Ooooh, that quote IS perfect!

    And, I really love that needle felting!

    Even through your fatigue you are writing and creating beautiful art--and honoring God through both.
