Summer Cold

A  L  O  H  A !
" A rustle in the wind
 reminds us 
a fairy is near. "

“It's a bizarre 
but wonderful feeling,
 to arrive dead center 
of a target 
you didn't even know 
you were aiming for.” 
                            Lois McMaster Bujold

 " 'T is better to be lowly born, 
And range with humble livers in content, 
Than to be perked up in a glistering grief, 
And wear a golden sorrow. "

Having a cold
is what I call:
'Healthy People Problems"
And I have a 

We forget how awful
a simple cold can 
make us feel.

It reminds me
to be grateful,
and to spare a thought
for those
[some of you]
who live with
challenges who live
with pain.

Hang in there!
Fondly, cloudia

Aloha! Catching a cold is awful and the one with the cold knows how awful it is. Having plenty of rest helps to build up our resistance. Happy Sunday!

I just heard a whisper through my morning breeze that a Good Fairy (keeper of all ills) is headed your way, to bring fairy dust and wellness to you! Aloha, Cloudia

Low born and high born. I figure they all know sorrow, of some color or another.

A cold can indeed make a body feel miserable out of all proportion to the 'severity' of the ailment. Look after yourself.
And thank you (again) for the beauty and wisdom.

Hope you feel much better soon! I hope you see one of those fairies next time you hear the wind rustle. :)

Vanessa Victoria Kilmer said...

Colds are the worst. Just enough to make you miserable. I hope you feel better soon.

A fairy? As if I don't have enough problems to settle, On Tinkerbell alert.

Here you are feeling miserable, and yet you remind yourself to feel gratitude. You're a far more evolved person than I.
