Rain, Rain, Everywhere Rain


I awoke with the feeling of razor blades in my throat. I have not had a sore throat like this in what seems like years. All I want to do is curl up with my quilt on the sofa and watch mindless television. I got a fire going in the stove, made some tea and toast and sat by the window watching the birds try to eat between the rain drops. Made me feel very thankful for a warm dry house. Emery did my chores yesterday and this morning and I know he will do them again tonight, he is that kind of thoughtful man. Last night he ran out to the local store to get me a certain kind of cough drops and came home with a card and a container of Vicks Vapor-rub. I love that man with every single cell in my body.
Today will be another do nothing kind of day, which doesn't even frustrate me today, I feel that yukky. I might just watch the birds and mind the fire and call that my "work" for the day.
"God takes men as they are... They are not chosen because they are perfect, but notwithstanding their imperfections, that through the knowledge and practice of the truth, through the grace of Christ, they may become transformed into His image."
Desire of Ages, p. 294

Oh, Patty, I hope you feel better soon. I've been sick all week. Finally went to the doctor yesterday because my throat was getting sore. My daughter came over with lots of chicken broth, orange juice and oranges....Had lots planned this week, but had to cancel everything. Yet, I've had a lot of time to read and sleep! That must be good. I know you will find something good in this and be well soon. I've been reading the book Amish Grace and finding it interesting. It's about the Amish forgiveness of Robert Charles, and forgiveness in general.

Our basketball teams are at SAU for a basketball tournament. They've not enjoyed the weather! But are having a good time playing at least...

I hope you are soon well and that the germ doesn't spread around the family circle. I know that Melanie and Mei-Ling must be especially vulnerable, to say nothing of the new baby.
