Ill but still grateful

As you know, I have a cold. Thursday it got a bit worse, I started feeling chilly when the room temp was in the seventies, so I took my temperature. I had a fever.

After some discussion with my mother we decided that I shouldn't come to dinner. There were going to be three elderly relatives there, plus at least one person who couldn't afford to take any time off from his job.

This was the right decision, as it turned out: not only did I spend a lot of the day sleeping, my gut decided to do something unpleasant and I had to take medication for that. Which in turn makes you sleepy.

But I felt lonely, sad, guilty, and depressed. My comforts were Jack and a friend in NZ who kept me occupied with emails all day.

And yet. I am grateful for so much, more than I can list, to more people than I can number.

I hope all of you had good Thanksgivings. I hope you are having good Fridays. I hope you have a good rest of the year and a good 2012.
