Good morning, America! I’m so glad to live in you. I have much, and much to be thankful for this 4th of July. And I am. Very thankful that I have the freedom to stay up all hours of the night working on this blog (it moved, hope you noticed), and the freedom to go right back to bed. It’s a holiday (here in a America), which means I don’t gotta go to work today. And I’m very thankful for that!

So without further ado, goodnight, America! I’m going back to bed. Thanks for giving me the freedom to sleep in today. I’ll catch up with you later at the buffet.

Waiting to See

I am looking forward to that time when the faith shall be sight, when the mortal shall take on immortality. It’s not some kind of perverse death wish, but rather a desire to be whole.

You see, for several years I’ve had sleep apnea. I had hoped that by losing weight this year it would improve; it hasn’t. I stumble from bed bleary-eyed and tired everyday. Added to this is hypothyroidism–which I’m having checked out today.

Don’t get me wrong: I have a good life, great kids, a wonderful wife, but my body is just so tired all the freaking time! It gets old, you know? And I’m not even (that) old–though my age at the end of this month will match the late Douglas Adams’s answer for life, the universe, and everything.

I feel naked, exposed, sharing this with you, but there you have it (and my purpose for sharing): will you please pray for me? Pray that we can these health issues worked out, that I can sleep well at night, that I can keep doing my thing here on the blog.

Thanks so much!

May I pray for you? Please share your requests in the comments.
