Day 55 - A Cup of Hot Tea

I have a cold. Sore throat. Stuffy nose. Headache. Tired. Your run-of-the-mill-common-every-day-cold. And all I want to do is sit on the couch - more like lie on the couch - and watch mindless TV, drifting in and out of a nap or two. But I'm a mother. With kids who want her attention. And I'm a wife, too. With a husband who wants to eat dinner. So lazying around isn't in the plans for me today. But a moment to enjoy a cup of hot tea is. I just made it. It's cooling here - waiting for me. And in a moment I'm going to get a few minutes of silence and hot liquid to soothe my aches and pains. Today, I'm not feeling very joyful. But there IS joy in my cup of hot tea.
