Isn't that Spoon Theory a fantastic way to explain our condition to others! I just love it.
Oh yes, I think Christmas, Thanksgiving, any time of year that involves a lot of prep work, is really hard on me too. This year, my hubby and entire family decided to not do a gift exchange. It saves us all from battling the malls, plus, it gives us an opportunity to put our money towards helping the needy. We also decided to go out for Christmas supper! No cooking, or cleaning to worry about. Everyone is happier because we're doing less. I think when the holiday is over we'll all say it was one of the best Christmas's we've ever had. I'll sure be happy because my Lupus and Fibro didn't flare up!
Keeping it simple, really does work and you'll have extra spoons left over!!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
