I am sick.
I have the runny nose, congestion, drainage, and today the tickle in the throat signifying those oncoming coughing spells. The Kleenex box and I have become good buddies in the last two days.
I was starting to feel sorry for myself about having to continue on at work and not having any time to get sick...but also that I didn't have anyone to "pamper" me...you know, how you miss your mom babying you when you don't feel well?
Well, to my surprise, about 1:15 this afternoon, I was hacking my way through a piano lesson, when who would knock on my office door but my Lafayette "Mom"--Amy Knolhoff! (Technically, she's more the age of a big sister, but...never mind...) In she pops and hands me a little baggie with Motrin, Sudafed, a multivitamin, and zinc tablets. Then she gives me a bottle of water and a bottle of Diet 7up AND a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup! And she gives me "doctor's orders" to take the pills IMMEDIATELY. Of course, I complied. And the chicken noodle soup was SO GOOD! What a wonderful surprise! It's so neat to see God provide a friend like this one to encourage me!
