Fatigue Fighter

“I once complained to my doctor that I felt tired all the time and wondered if there was something wrong with me. He just looked at me and laughed, and said "you and every other woman on this earth." Obviously, he did not think being tired was unusual for a mom of three and he was no help whatsoever. I really just wanted to know if it was normal to wake up looking forward to a nap. Do you ever feel that way?

I recently asked one of our Company Girls, Heather from Quiet Rest, for some of her fatigue-fighting strategies. Heather is an amazing woman who lives with non-alcoholic liver disease. As she puts it, "it's common when your liver is not functioning to have about as much energy as a rock." Despite this, Heather manages to accomplish more in a day than most people dream of, and allows God's grace and strength to shine in her weakness. She was so gracious to share her wisdom with me, and I know you'll benefit from it too!

Today's Small Thing is to take one of Heather's fatigue-fighting strategies, (whether you're feeling tired or not,) and put it into practice.

Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy what Heather has to say!”
