I, Nicole Lindsey Kim Hamm, am the recipient of a miracle. Yes, a miracle. It occured last night around 10:00 pm and didn’t end until 6:10 am this morning. The miracle? I slept. All night. Like a baby.
I’m not joking. God really did create a miracle, and maybe it’s because I’m in a place where I feel content that I am terming it that way. But it has to be. I could not stop coughing until late last night. And then, all of a sudden – I stopped.
It took my about 15 minutes to realize what was happening, and then I got ready for bed as fast as I ever have. I was asleep in 5 minutes, and woke up this morning. I can’t say I felt “refreshed”, because I promptly began coughing again and wanted to fall asleep during my first class, but I felt like I could function my way through the midterm. And I did.
Now, some people would say it’s the Neocitran (why didn’t anybody tell me that stuff tastes so awful!) and the Benilyn Nighttime Cough medicine (which was just…gross…) that I took, but I think it’s a miracle.
I had been worrying all day about whether I was going to sleep, and studying took much longer than normal because my brain was only on half-speed. So I just finally prayed, “God, please let me sleep tonight!” And I did.
Coincidence? The result for medicine? Sure. But I prefer to look at it as God giving me a break.
“Something’s gotta give…”
