Sick…but Thankful

I’ve been in denial for a few days now, but it’s clear to me now that I am getting sick. Sore throat, congestion, and weakness have taken over my body. Yet, as I sit here, curled up with a cup of lemon herbal tea and honey, I can’t help but smile as I think over my day. No sickness can put a damper on the thankfulness in my heart.

Here’s just a few reasons why:

My daughter’s open mouthed, slobbery, kisses
The way my son always wants to cuddle with us when he goes to sleep
A house, that is never 100% clean, but always full of life and laughter
Comfy cuddle clothes (hey, it’s the little things)
Getting a night off from cooking (thanks Chick-fil-a family night)
Inside jokes, and that secret smile my husband gives me when we’re reminded of one
Safety on the roads (which I traveled on quite a bit today)
And the sweet truth of the gospel, especially when my heart was discouraged

Good night friends…I will leave you with some advice, take some vitamin C, just in case.
