The Heavens Parted and the Skies Cleared

When I woke up this morning, something was different.

My body didn't ache.  The exhaustion was gone. I had no chills or fever.  The cough that has plagued my bronchii for the last week had finally broken.  All five kids will be at school today. It was a long week.

Let me shout it from the rooftops:

I am finally healthy again!

Nothing feels better than the first day you're better from an extended illness.  Laundry piles that have been neglected for a week are inviting.  Kitchen messes are exciting.  Running a few miles and spending time on the yoga mat sound refreshing. Homework and practicing and cleaning are wonderful challenges to be tackled with a smile.

I'm ready to face this day.
