It’s been few months since I’ve been GLUTEN-free, SUGAR-free and DAIRY-free. I guess I didn’t realize what a huge effect the diet had been having on my quality of life. Yesterday was the triplet’s 9th birthday. Hubby surprised us with a chocolate, chocolate chip ICE CREAM cake! I decided that for their birthday, I would indulge and partake in the “eating” of the celebratory cake (for THEIR sake, of course)!
The chocolate fudgy center was to die for . . . . and I almost did! Kidding! But I did find myself acting juvenile and silly, making up “potty” songs to the theme of Frozen’s LET IT GO – and laughing HYSTERICALLY at myself. (Looking back I realize, this was the sugar HIGH). A few minutes later, I found myself on the couch. Within the hour, I was in a sugar-induced coma, barely able to function.
Hubby came in a few times to ask questions about the kids’ clothes for the next day and about packing lunches, and I think I mumbled a response – but that’s all I remember. The next thing I knew, I was in bed this morning and my alarm clock was going off.
I’m still recovering from the sugar shock. I was exhausted all day and felt extremely Lymie. But, just like the pizza crust, I learned a valuable lesson . . . . make sure I’m in my own home and close to my bed, the next time I cheat, so when the coma hits, I don’t have far to go!
Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
I am so blessed to have such wonderful, faithful, God loving children. Although it’s not always easy, it is always possible – thanks to God! Love you guys – happy birthday!
