Let's face it...it stinks. When we are forced to take some 'down time' it typically seems like a HUGE inconvenience! However, between our coughs and sneezes, we begin to notice a few things: the sun still rises; those things we thought couldn't succeed or even continue without our constant attention are still going; and the things we tend to do only when forced (sip some tea, read a book, take a nap or a walk) now almost seem like accomplishments. Huh. I still don't like being sick but I'm going to try and see that optimistic side a bit more.
