Here it is Wednesday, the day of the week I usually post something, and yet, I don’t feel much like sitting at my computer. For several days, I’ve been fighting a cold, and yesterday, the cold started fighting back even harder by moving into my lungs, firing up a fever and making everything generally pretty achy. So if you don’t mind, I’m going to take today off.
But I’ll share with you one of my favorite Irish blessings, so very true for me this week, as I’ve found myself grateful for a warm, dry house during days of rain, wind and cold, and also thankful for warm cups of tea:
May you always be blessed
With walls for the wind.
A roof for the rain.
A warm cup of tea by the fire.
Laughter to cheer you.
Those you love near you.
And all that your
Heart might desire.
My heart desires a good night’s sleep and clear lungs. Maybe your heart desires spring to come quickly? There are a few signs in my garden that spring is on its way. Look for pictures in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a little indoor cheer and a hope that the only fever you have is spring fever:
Are you feeling better, Hope? Bloggers certainly get sick days. But this one doesn’t count since you still came to the computer and gave us both a poem and a photo 🙂
Hi, Tracey — I am finally feeling better (though not 100% yet). Thanks for your kind words about my “sick day” blog, too. It didn’t feel like much work because the picture was one I had taken already, and the poem wasn’t mine. I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Hope you feel better soon – it has been a hard winter on most of us.
Thanks, Patty. I’m finally starting to feel better!
Hope you are feeling better today. Just want to let you know I wrote a little book about how to stop colds as soon as they start, in case you want to make this your last cold.
