Watching the Paint Peel Off the Ceiling

I have been lying around for the better part of the last two weeks watching the paint peel off my ceiling.  What can I say?  I lead an exciting life and it's not often that one could actually claim to be watching the paint peel off the ceiling but in this case, it's the truth.  I give you exhibit A...

the ceiling above my bed.  I had a bout of malaria which had me in bed for four days last week.  Then wouldn't you know it, I had to return to my prone position to ward off another round of something which included more fever and a nasty cough.  Needless to say, looking at this ceiling is getting rather old so I'm distracting myself with a silly poem...


and a little list of things for which I am thankful.

  • a neighbor that is a nurse and a friend
  • friends that bring me drinks, meals, medicine
  • texts, calls and facebook notes from friends who care
  • being able to listen to sermons and Christian radio online
  • thermometers :)
  • a good book like this one to read when I've actually felt up to reading
  • a great teacher's assistant who has been willing to teach for me
  • God's word that puts everything back into perspective
  • and last but not least - silly poems!


  1. love your sense of humor... and prayed that you'll feel better and be back to yourself very soon. :-)

    1. Thanks, Richelle, really appreciating those prayers as I woke up with fever AGAIN!

    2. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I'll be praying that you're back to your "cool" self soon. :)

    3. Bring on the "coolness"! I am so ready! Thanks for praying, Anna.
