A small request
« on: March 18, 2013, 08:25:24 am »
I am not entirely sure on how to put this forth, as it somewhat embarrasses me completely to ask anyone about this, much less people I look up to and care for.

I have been sick for the last six days now, with some severe coughing fits going on. I am trying to care for it with lots of Vitamin C, rest, and medicine, and I'm going to talk to my mother (who is a nurse and has been for longer than I've been alive) if I don't feel better tonight.

I've been not doing Senut because of this, and regardless of my little offerings and small doings, I feel a bit...guilty...even though I know I shouldn't feel that way and that They want me to take care of myself. It isn't really a guilty feeling, but more a feeling of shirking my duties to them, if that makes any sense. It's not really a feeling I'm used to, since before Senut, I rarely did any rituals or workings or anything that were repeated or even similar to each other. However, it seems like I've gotten attached to doing Senut (even though I was highly reluctant and crotchety when I found out about it). So, it's bothering me more than a bit that I can't do it due to the coughing fits and sneezing. More or less, it's because I feel like I can't properly honor them. I like the ritualized, state feeling of the Senut; like my home is a place for both personal and community practice (even though it isn't really).

So, more or less, I'm asking for prayers in getting better soon (even though I ranted the bejebus out of this). :blush:

I am praying for your health.

And keep in mind that the gods want us to live a full and healthy life...so in effect, by concentrating on getting yourself better you are making a living offering out of yourself.

Feel better and hang in there
