Day 20: I am grateful for Puffs with lotion!

365 Days of Wonderful – Day 20

Today I am grateful for Puffs with lotion! I came from my conference with a killer cold. Darn it. All that airline travel, not in my own rhythm, nor bed, nor routines Shaking hands, and sharing space with hundreds of strangers… I really would not have changed a minute of it.

But I’ve been down for the couch all day today. Horizontal more than upright. The crud has taken up residence and I’ve served an eviction notice! So I ventured out to the grocery for more Puffs, seriously, those are the greatest thing ever invented!

I am grateful for the arms of my loving couch that has cradled me though out the day. I am grateful for my handmade quilt that comforts me. I am grateful for my dog’s willingness to snuggle–and not judge me for my jammy day. I am grateful for the food in the fridge, and the hot gypsy cold care tea.

I am grateful that a friend just called to tell me to go look at the moon and I saw a partial eclipse! I am grateful to be surrounded by the beauty and majesty of nature, and that I appreciate it from the confines of my couch day.

I am grateful for cough drops, and heating pads, and pain relievers. I am grateful for lip balm and running water from the tap. I am grateful for the modern invention of the flush toilet… because baby it is COLD outside!

So even on my down day, not in my finest of states, I can still summon up gratitude, and lots of be appreciative of. I feel deeply blessed by this life, even if alien mucus has taken over my bronchial passageways. I am grateful to know that with oil of oregano, Manuka honey, On Guard cough drops, On Guard on my feet and Citrus Bliss on my pulse points–I will emerge victorious!
