Well last night my parents were on the verge of taking me to the ER because of the serious swelling of my tonsils.  I wanted to wait however and get some sleep.  This morning around 8:00 we headed to the doctor's officer where I found out I have Strep Throat and Mono.  Yay!!!  So...that means I'm gonna have to take it really easy the next few weeks (which the next few weeks also include 2 weeks of fair.)  It could be lots of fun!!!

It's so easy to get discouraged at this time, but I want to share some encouragement I recieved today.  This lady did not realize that I was sick, so I thought it very amazing that God keeps up our spirits by encouraging us through little things.'s a little note she sent:

Happy Birthday Bethany...hope it is a Great day..but it will be because this is the day that the Lord has made! :)

 Wow!!!  Sotrue!  I may want to complain, I mean I only have so many birthdays you know and 17 for goodness sakes!  I only have so many teen birthdays!  Wellllll, it doesn't matter!  This is still a great day because the Lord made it and He's in control....Praise the Lord!

 Well, I'll leave you with that thought, hope all is well with everyone!

Well, even though you're feeling bad, Happy Birthday! I hope you begin to feel better soon! I've had Mono before, so I know it's not fun, but my throat didn't swell up. Instead, I got a ton of cankersores (however you spell that!) in my mouth. I couldn't close my mouth or anything! It hurt so bad! I had to eat baby food, and green beans on top of it all! :( Yeah, so I feel for you! :)

I'll be praying that you make a speedy recovery!

In Christ,

I didn't realize it was your birthday. So sorry you were sick, but hope you're on the mend now. Happy birthday and hope you have many, many more. You have a beautiful life ahead of you and you've got such a positive, sweet attitude I know you'll have many happy ones.
