I have been really tired since coming to The Land, and about a week ago started putting pieces together and realizing that I am showing many signs of anemia (not that hard to figure out because my blood tests always have shown low iron, and I haven’t been taking iron pills as I was supposed to). I was excited to realize this, because I can easily fix it. With gusto I started taking my iron supplements a few days ago.
On Saturday night, after a frisbee game, I had some popcorn before bed. I was surprised to find a screw in the bottom of my bowl of popcorn. I think the lid I was using might have fallen apart and deposited the screw in my food… at least I hope so. I threw it away.
Last night, just three days later, my roommate and I got a tomato sauce based dish at a local restaurant and brought it home for dinner.
I found a screw buried in the sauce. For your viewing pleasure, I took a photo of it this morning:
Is this God confirming that I need more iron? Or maybe telling me that He’ll supply what I need?
Here’s to hoping that I continue finding them before biting them and breaking my teeth…
