Slowing Down And Looking Around

Updated on November 12, 2013

Making The Best Of It

You have been given the opportunity to relax

Catch up on long over do rest

Quieting your mind and clearing your chest

It takes a smart person to see the bright side

Spending more time at home when usually you have to hurry to go to work

Putting off work for the time being

Letting all your frustrations go

Draped in a blanket warm and toasty

Your thoughts put at ease watching old t.v. shows

That rekindle fun memories

The ones that have shaped your childhood and gave you so much pleasure

Eating light giving your digestive system a break

Still feeling under the weather

Coughing now more than ever

Here is some tea with honey to soothe

Give it some time

Feeling fine is a state of mind

      Very important Michael; slowing down, listening to the need of our body, and treating it generously. We have long way to go together. I mean the spirit, soul and the body together.

      Up and interesting

      Hope your wife feels better soon. I know when I get sick I feel sooo miserable. I agree about the viral part last winter even the cat joined in and we had the rounds of miserable colds and chest infections twice.
