Yesterday I was sick. Not just feeling bad or tired or icky. Sick. The kind of sick where you lay in bed and don’t think any thoughts at all. You’re not asleep because you can’t. Your body hurts and isn’t working right. Getting the days work done isn’t any option and you don’t care anyway. Time isn’t important. You just miss your healthy body. And that’s only a 24 hour “bug”.
I don’t get sick very often. I tend to miss out on contracting that “thing that’s going around”. I’m pretty convinced that when I do fall ill, it’s because I wasn’t listening to my body and taking proper care of it. I don’t eat right, rest enough and deal with stress. And my body makes itself heard. “Hello, you need me and you aren’t doing a very good job of paying attention to me”.
So, here’s to today. Feeling better, but I’m not going to try and make up all of the things I missed yesterday. I’m just going to start with the here and now and get done what has to be done. And rest. Because I really don’t like being sick.
Here’s to day of peace and grace for all of us.
