Poor Ramona -- a fever of 104 yesterday!
Poor Betsy -- Coughing so much she couldn't sleep!
Poor Anne-with-an-e -- Achy legs! Sore throat!
Poor me -- Woke in the night feeling as if I were floating! Eek! And I'm using too many exclamation points!
Poor Atticus -- He has to live with us!
Quotes for a Sick Day! Now!
“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.”
~~ Dorothy Canfield Fisher
“Illness is the most heeded of doctors: to goodness and wisdom we only make promises; pain we obey.” ~~ Marcel Proust
"I love you, Atticus. You're such a good daddy, going out for Milanos at nine o'clock at night for your eight-year-old."
~ Me (and of course, she was already falling asleep and didn't want them by the time he returned.)
