Times Like These

It's times like these, when I'm feeling not so up to par that it's easy to be grateful. I'm grateful we're not seriously ill, just your run of the mill colds that will likely find us up and running again by next weekend. Grateful that we had this virus manifest this weekend and not next when we have a lot of traveling and visiting to do. It's strange - the last few days when I worsened Riley improved and vise-versa. He actually slept for 2 hours on the couch yesterday - unheard of - then begged to go to bed by 6:30. He had a low grade fever which had him moaning and whimpering every hour or so. We're moving today, feeling around 60%. And I'm grateful the weather has been kind of crappy because I haven't felt like we've really missed out on any fun and I don't feel guilty for not working the garden. See, it's easy to be grateful, times like these.

You're playing the Pollyanna "Glad Game." Good for you!
(Do you remember that movie, that game?)
May you both feel better - pronto!

Your spirit is beautiful...things can always be worse. It doesn't mean we "like" what's happening to us but we can put it on a scale of 1-10 and realize we're better off than we might think.

Being a sick mother while a child is ill too isn't easy but somehow the universe has pulled together and made it a little easier for you.

Rest up this final day of the long weekend (it's sunny here but cold!) so you are fit and healthy for your busy weeks coming up!

When we are sick, it really makes us appreciate wellness doesn't it. Hope you recover before your trip.
