Sick Leave Has It's Benefits

Yesterday I spent the day at home to nurse my laryngitis. Around 8:00am I went into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee and noticed how beautiful the morning sun looked through the family room door. Everything seemed so bright and ready for the day. With my busy life, I often miss out on scenes like this.

The two metal cranes that my daughter-in-law gave me appeared to be enjoying the early morning sun, as well.

Reminder to self: Slow down and look out the window more often!

I hope you're feeling better - but if you're not "too sick" those "mental health" days are great!

Wow, the view from your window is gorgeous!
Hope you're feeling better!

The veiw was beautiful, slowing down to relish it more often would be a good idea.
Get well soon!
Or take another day off ;)
