Spring Break

There's a nasty sinus crud that's been circulating around our office, and I have finally succumbed to it and am taking a sick day. It's been a crazy couple of months and I feel like I've been going pretty much non-stop at work lately, so I think my poor body just needs a break. Now that things are starting to slow down somewhat, I'd planned on taking a much-needed day off next week, but I guess that wasn't soon enough.

It's rather frustrating to be out sick, particularly on such a beautiful spring-like day. If I felt better I'd be all for mowing my grass or out running errands. Then again, if I felt better I'd be at work today. Still, I'm trying to be positive and think of things to be thankful for, such as:

-I'm thankful that it's been about 3 years since I've had any sort of sickness. Of course, being sick makes me appreciate my normal good health even more.

-I'm thankful that my fever has gone away, and I'm confident that I'll be feeling better and back at work tomorrow.

-I'm thankful that I have co-workers who can handle things for me when I'm gone.

-I'm thankful for the access to medicine, kleenex, diet ginger ale, and other supplies to help me feel better. So many people don't have access to or can't afford such luxuries.

-I'm thankful that I can actually take a sick day without losing pay or worrying about my job security.

-I'm thankful for cable TV and DVDs and books to entertain me today. And of course for the internet!

-I'm thankful for the well wishes and prayers from friends. I am blessed!
