A Thing you Forget to be Grateful for



You have heard it said over and over again that you don't know what you've got until it is gone...boy has that been the case the last few days. I came down with some horrible sick bug that has kept me in bed for going on 3 days. I feel it quite an accomplishment to be up at the computer, though a bit woozey. What I want to say mostly to you mom's in the same place as me is how funny it is that the things you think you want once in awhile really aren't all that great. I have a houseful of people at my beckon call-bringing me anything I want, rubbing my head, taking my temperature (incessantly) and making sure I have nothing to do. I have watched hours of chick flicks and read the blasted last vampire book. But, what I really want is to get up make dinner for my family and watch my son ride around on his bike (since he learned today). I hate meeting new people but am sick that I missed back to school day with Jamen's new teacher. I got out of breaking up fights, putting on band aids and the never ending feedings, but the truth is I can't wait to be well enough to do it myself.

I'm with ya'. Been sick and missing life, too. Except for I don't have anybody doing all those things for me. Where'd you find that?

you are lucky you have so much help in your healing! I hope you are 100% better soon.

i'm so sorry you are feeling so crummy! i hope you feel back to tip top shape soon, my friend! i can totally relate to being grateful to be strong enough to do all of the chores that normally you think you don't want to do until you can't do them!

I would love to have an excuse to stay in bed and get absolutely nothing done. I know being sick isn't fun... sometimes being well isnt either.
