some odes and such...

Wow, having a really, really, terrifyingly painful flu virus/body collapse can make a girl appreiciate the simple things! For example, I've really missed this over the past couple of weeks, and I can't wait to get back to it. (Yay Monday! Here I come!) and let's NOT forget the hubs! I am in awe of all he has done to take care of me while I have been too weak to cook, clean, sit up or...well...even MOVE really! And I am really, really grateful for a strong, healthy body! I have often taken for granted all that it enables me to accomplish. As the saying goes, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone." and I really hadn't thought about (not for awhile anyway) how blessed I really am to have a strong, healthy body! I guess that's often what illness, challenges, and trials are for. To help us remember and appreciate the beautiful gifts and blessings that we have come to believe are "givens" in our every day lives.
All I know, is that food tastes better, music sounds sweeter, vacuuming can be exciting (when you've wondered if you'd ever have enough energy to do it again) and good friends are priceless! I am a very blessed girl indeed, and having friends like you (yes - y.o.u.)...
well that's just icing on the cake.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. It's good that you have a husband that will step up to the plate when needed.
