When sunshine comes in flower form...

When it is Monday and you're sick, you can still find something magnificent to give thanks for.
Even when you've spent the entire weekend sick with a yucky virus there are still little magnificent things to be thankful for.

I've spent the entire weekend with a yucky virus. Today I'm feeling a smidgen better, but still sick. But, there have been some truly magnificent things to give thanks for.

I'm thankful for my precious family and how sweet they've been to me, all the glasses of water they've gotten me, the teddy grahams and orange juice, and all the extra times they've meaningfully said, "I love you. I hope you get feeling better soon."

And, there is this fellow that I'm, well, pretty fond of. He and I texted over the weekend and he knew I wasn't feeling well. So, guess what he did? He worked out a way to come by last night, give me sunshine in the form of flowers, a note that I cherish, and just sit and visit a little while. I'm overwhelmingly thankful.

So, on this Magnificent Monday, even though I'm still sick, even though I don't have much energy, there is still magnificence to enjoy. I'm enjoying three of those sunshine flowers in a mini vase sitting where I can see them from in my bed. I'm enjoying seeing the big bunch of the rest of the bouquet sitting in the kitchen every time I go drink yet another glass of water and take more medicine. Sometimes sunshine comes in the form of flowers.

The cheerful trio

What is one magnificent thing about your Monday?

May your Mondays be Magnificent!

      I'm not always in a good mood, but I've been learning to rejoice always and to be thankful amidst the good and the not so good too.

  3. Hi, Sarah -

    I am just back from a 3-week trip and trying to catch up. So sorry to hear you haven't been well this week...but how sweet that your admirer brought you flowers and a nice note! Wow, that is just awesome! I know how much little gestures like that mean when you are feeling bad.

    Hope you feel better soon - and I love the new look of your blog!


    1. Hi, Sue!

      I'm so glad that your blog silence was due to something pleasant like a vacation and not due to health issues. From your blog it looks like you and your family had a great time!

      Thank you. I'm finally feeling better now. Whatever the virus was it really took me down for a good bit. But, I'm so thankfully for feeling better now!
      Yes, he is so very sweet and I was so overwhelmingly blessed by his kindness. Little gestures mean so very much.

      Thank you! I'm glad you like the new look! I'm very pleased with it too!
