I caught it.
It being something nasty that has been going around.
Yesterday wasn't so bad. I had the sore throat, the hurting to swallow bit, but that was all. And the sun was shining, and the sky was blue and it was warm and there was an incredible wind storm. All things I love.
However, I was somehow hit by a truck in the night.
Today I am exhausted. Add to that the cough, sore throat, gray sky, snow covering everything, and cold cold air.
So, to cheer myself up, I close my eyes, and transport myself to our Sunday Walk in the Hollow. Glorious!
Also, yesterday while bad things were going down, I got a package in the mail from a wonderful friend. I love friends like that. Keith was thrilled to open "his presents," and they both enjoyed eating the contents. Thank you again, my dear friend. It was appreciated more than you will ever know.
Add to that an amazing blessing of protection.
I just have to say I am so grateful for blessings.
Yesterday while I was heading out to pick Jeffrey up from work, we had a near death experience. It was raining and someone decided they would kill for a Big Mac. And very nearly did. They pulled right in front of me to turn into McDonald's. I slammed on the breaks and braced myself. We slid within inches of running into their car. Had our car not recently gotten new tires, I am fairly certain we would be without a car, and possibly injured. Extreme prayers of gratitude were immediately offered. I am amazed.
Which makes being sick seem like not such a bad thing anymore.
