out sick

when you are a mother there are no sick days or paid vacations or hours of operation. i am reminded of that as i care for the infirm. two of my boys are sick so i am moving about our little cottage with glasses of water and tissue whilst coaxing cups of liquid elixer that brings down tempers and temperatures. i must confess the calm illness brings to our loud and raucous household is a nice reprieve. it makes me sad to hear my boys cough and wince with fever, but i so enjoy their desire to be held and cuddled. and it is my hope that with all this kissing and snuggling, i will not succumb because well, mothers do not get sick days. xo
