Sick Days

h-reading-poetry

This is what the days look like here – children on the floor, reading and coloring, breaking only to see if their relatives have sent an email or to check on Ticker. I kind of hover around, listening to the poetry ‘H’ likes to recite, reading poetry for a schoolwork dictée, and sometimes I just sit and watch the sunlight coming through the window.

‘H’ is on Day 22 of her cold, and I am following close behind on Day 20. I can’t get over how exhausted I am with this sickness. For someone like me who is always go-go-go it is really hard to be slowed down by my own energy level. Reassuring myself that I will get better, and eating nourishing foods helps a little bit. I was never blessed with patience, so it’s hard for me to wait.

To good health!
