Yes I had a boil on the second toe on my left leg. It was horrible as it ached me to no end. At one point, I thanked God I was at work because if I was at home, I could have found a knife to cut off the toe and end my misery. It was that bad.
Prior to that, I had malaria and a chesty cough which managed to make me go from my cheerful self down down into melancholy. And I gained weight in the recuperation period. Yes, I GAIN weight when I am ill, and not vice versa. Its why I fight to stay healthy all the time.
So now I have a big tummy, and fragile left foot, but you know what?
I am happy.
I made it into 2009. I have a left foot to complain about. I have weight to shed, which means I had access to food in the first place. I now have a job, and my brain is buzzing with ideas on how I want my year to be like.
I am grateful to be among the living.
Its not a feat I accomplished myself. I have God to thank for that.
But I have something to worry about...
I wonder what He has in store for me this year, because if last year is anything to go by, I am going to be surprised out of my pants...again!
