My teenage son and I are both home sick today. I honestly can’t remember the last time that either of us have missed work or school because of feeling poorly but here we are today, both home, both resting. Neither of us are suffering from the same symptoms or ailments, but both of us are feeling pretty lousy. So for a brief interlude between the naps and tea and tissues – I thought I would steal a minute to post a quick blog.
I don’t like being sick, and I really don’t like it when my kids don’t feel well. There is nothing nice about the aches and pains and discomforts. Yet nonetheless, I feel kinda grateful. Grateful that we are both unexpectedly here, on a quiet, cold, winter day, sharing in a little camaraderie as we fight off our colds with the chance that we can spend a little quiet time in each other’s presence, just resting.
