Seven Things I’m Particularly Thankful For This Weekend

Since I’ve been sick with strep throat the past few days, I’ve realized that there are some things that really make a difference for someone who is sick.  Here are the things and people that made a positive difference for me this past week:

(1) Penicillin - Friday morning I felt like I’d been run over by a truck.  After spending over an hour in the doctor’s office (They wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to share my strep germs with everyone else in the waiting room) I finally got a shot of penicillin around 10:30.  By the time I went to bed Friday night I was feeling noticeably better.  Miraculous stuff!  Saturday morning – even better.

(2) RT – He has really pampered me while I’ve been sick.  He has brought me breakfast in bed the past two mornings,  built a fire in the fireplace and tucked blankets around my feet as I sat in the recliner. 

(3) Sweet Stuff – Friday afternoon when she found out that I had strep, she called to talk to me and gave me some seriously tender sympathy.

(4) Sunshine – Who hates getting shots, and upon learning that I got a shot yesterday, she also gave me some seriously tender sympathy.

(5) Stinkeroo – Who called each day to check on me and offered to drive me to the doctor and do whatever she could for me.

(6) Ice Cream – It just feels SO good on a sore throat (and tastes good, too)

(7)  Homemade chicken soup – I made a pot of chicken rice soup yesterday afternoon – and it is SO good.  Hot, healthful, and hearty.  RT and I had some for dinner last night and will eat it for lunch and dinner today, too.
