Wednesday's Wonders--Health

We've been battling the galloping crud around here this week. It felled one daughter, then the son, then me and another daughter, and finally the hubby. It's been a real germapalooza. We're finally coming out of it, and it makes me thankful for many things: indoor plumbing, a microwave, extra soft tissues, takeout, an insanely comfortable bed with fresh sheets--to name just a few. But most of all, I'm thankful for my health that is returning.

There is nothing like sickness to remind us how much we appreciate health. So, on this day of returning to the ranks of the hale and hearty, I celebrate health. It is a wonder.

Glad to hear you all are on the mend!

I'll take being sick any day over the kids!

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I had a bout of something at the end of February that I hope to never have again in my life. Yes, I second that, let's be thankful for our health and strength.

I'm just getting over a sinus infection. I love health. =)

T. Anne said...

So I caught this cold from you? ;) Germapalooza abounds at my house too. Yuck.

Angie said...

So glad your feeling better!

It's going around up here in my end too. Luckily it won't catch us until next week when she's out of school. I hate for her to miss it. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Glad to hear your getting better. Here's to health!

Lady Glamis said...

Yep. If you don't have your health, you don't have anything!

Rena said...

Oh yikes -- having the whole family sick is the worse. I'm glad to hear you're on the mend.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. There is nothing worse than a sick family when you are sick, too.

PJ Hoover said...

Exactly what you said. The only good thing about feeling sick is how much you appreciate feeling better.

Hope you continue on the mend.

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

I second that. Health is so important. Glad the germapalooza is almost over.

Thanks for all your well wishing. I was a little premature on the hubby's diagnosis. He's down. At least I'm up to take care of him.

Julie Dao said...

I so agree. Every time I get sick and it gets that harder to even just move around, I think about how much I take health for granted! Glad most of you are on the mend! I have an award for you at my blog :)

I know how you feel. I was sick a week ago and I'm just barely feeling better. Funny thing is that my kids never seem to get sick, both me and my husband do, but not the kids. Weird.

Angela said...

I know what you mean. I am quite lucky as I rarely get sick, but when I do, man, I am down and out and so appreciative when the plague lifts.

Horay for health!

Yay for getting rid of Germs. They are truly annoying. I get ill a lot...so its nice when I'm feeling normal!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I'm glad you're doing better! Maybe it will be warm enough in the Carolinas this weekend to open the windows and let those germs out. I hope so!

We've been sick here too. Health is a wonderful thing!
