The change of weather from Boston to Tampa has finally caught up with me. I felt a sore throat coming on the last couple of days while in Boston, but it did not become a full-fledged cold until Saturday. I went to see October Baby (A MUST SEE!!) that morning and by that evening I was on the couch begging Jake to make me some tea. Yeah, I’m a bit of a baby when I’m sick!
On Sunday, I was feeling better and was able to attend an amazing Easter service at church, had lunch with Brian and his family and then enjoyed the rest of the day with Brian which also happened to be his birthday. I don’t think I even sniffled all day. It was like the Lord gave me a day off from my cold to rejoice in celebrating His Resurrection!
I say day off because Monday at work, I was sneezing and sniffling all day!! I was having the worst time breathing. I made it through the day, but when I woke up this morning, I felt horrible. I had to call in sick from work. There was no way I could even make it to take Jake to school. Luckily, he was able to get a ride to school.
The whole point of me telling you how sick I was/am is to help you understand how terrible I must’ve looked when I walked into church tonight to drop off tickets for a concert on Friday night. (I had no intention of going to church tonight and I didn’t even stay long, but I thought it would be nice for people to have their tickets before the event.)
Anyway, even though I looked and felt horrible, no one backed off! Everyone still hugged me! My honey even kissed me!! I was shocked at the care I received…not because my friends are mean, but because usually when someone is sick, you stay away!! Goes to show my church family is pretty AMAZING and would even risk their own health to make me feel better!! That’s what real friendship is all about!!
