Tis the Season to be Sneezing

Yes, the cold and flu season is once again upon us. Every member of my family is currently suffering from a slight cold. Thankfully, it is a virus that still allows us to be functional as long as we are medicated. I do not enjoy being sick (who does?) but sometimes it does offer the excuse to take a little better care of myself. Like most moms, a day off is out of the question, but I can go to bed earlier without feeling guilty. I don't feel the same need (or even the ability) to do it all, all the time. I think God allows sickness to give us the chance to rest a little. It isn't fun, and I absolutely hate it when my children are sick, but it is a reminder to be thankful when we are all healthy and to take care of each other (and myself) when we are not.

Sorry Patti! I am still suffering from the same cough I had when I was there.
