Adapting to a new schedule usually isn't this difficult, at least for me I thought. In my younger years I could have slept 3 hours and continued without a loss of energy the next day. But since I have started working until midnight five days a week I found myself with headaches all day and dragging my body around town as I tried to act as if nothing was phasing me.
But I do know this for certain, I am not Superman. I may pretend to be, but I am weak and I falter often. It is interesting to me that some friends and family depend on me when at times, I cannot depend on myself. This where God's grace fills my emptiness and keeps me fresh.
I was determined to live my life the way I wanted after I began my new shift at work. I would still wake up at 6 with my wife, and go about our normal morning routine. When this was compounded with my inability to fall asleep immediately after getting home from work, I found my self in a bit of a rut. I was wearing thin, and my head was pounding as I was in need of ibuprofen throughout the day too keep those pains away.
It takes a lot to get though to me sometimes and I am glad I have a woman in my life that is not afraid to tell me so.
I say this because I woke up this morning later than I had expected and my wife already gone to work. At first I thought to myself, "why did she leave without saying goodbye?" My natural instinct was selfishness, as I felt I needed that comfort before she left for work. As the minutes passed and I began to wake, I realized that she had done the best thing for me, which was let me sleep.
She had my interests at heart all along-just as my heavenly father does. As He watches us, He knows our plan and never leaves us. And I am thankful i can feel His love from a person so close to me on a daily basis.
I hope you find someone who loves you as much as I have been loved, at least for a short time. It is truly necessary for all people.
