It's the Simple Things

Things that are making me happy tonight...
  • Freshly laundered sheets and my down comforter turned down invitingly.
  • The giggles of sisters chasing each other through the house. The silence of a house full of sickness was deafening.
  • Knowing that tomorrow we all go back to our normal schedules.
  • The warmth of a fireplace on a cold and icy night.
  • Being able to actually find things in my recently straightened pantry, and not having canned goods fall on me when I open the door.
  • The sweet scent of my girls' hair after a restorative, hot soak in the bubbles.
  • Tussin with codeine cough syrup guaranteeing me a sound night's sleep.
  • Stink Doggy- Dog has an appointment with the groomer tomorrow.
  • A good book on my nightstand with only a few chapters left to enjoy. (Debbie Macomber's "Back on Blossom Street")

After having our routine and household turned upside down by sickness, I am truly thanking God for the blessing of a life full of normalcy.

Life is good.

Sickness is depressing, mostly because it takes us out of our "normal" routine. I'm so glad you're all finally doing better!
