I have been moderately ill the past few days; and after another night of difficult, choppy sleep, today was a rough one. The things that made me smile today were the things that brought me physical comfort, such as:
Medicine. I’m grateful I live in a time (and a culture) that supports the use of medicine both for healing and for comfort.
Ultra-soft tissues. They really are worth the extra money.
Warm beverages. I think I drank my own body weight in tea and cocoa today.
My sweetie’s touch. Being held, rubbed, and caressed by my sweetie is incredibly soothing to me.
Here’s to a night of unbroken sleep, easier breathing, and the absence of pain. We’ll see how many of these I actually get this evening. (*weak smile – but a smile nonetheless*)
