When We Feel Under The Weather

Updated on November 29, 2017

Hang In There Until We Feel Better

The worst thing is

We have to wait it out

Our stomach might me doing flip flops

A pounding headache decided to add to the fun

We wonder was someone else sick ?

In work or a member of my family or friends

I was feeling fine

Then all of a sudden

I got the chills

I don't feel right

I feel awfully tired

I am off to bed to get some rest

I felt this way yesterday then it went away

I thought I was all better

Now I feel the same way again

I might cancel plans for tomorrow

I don't want to get anyone else sick

I'm nauseous and I have that queasy feeling

All I want to do is feel better

Life is funny this way

Sometimes it takes a simple reminder

To refresh our memory

How wonderful it feels to be healthy

When we don't feel up to par

One minute to the next is always different

Now I feel hot

Well for the most part I am always healthy

Today is an exception to the rule

I watch my wife as she struggles with the blues

I feel helpless

All I can do is give her love and support

Do a little extra around the house

See if I can make her comfortable

Give her some special attention and prayers

Her body has to do the hard work

I know there is a lesson in here

We might find so many things to do

Racing around from morning to night

Busy with work and earning the almighty dollar

I am proud to say

Our health is the best gift of all

On any given day

      Tim Mitchell I am so blessed that the feeling doesn't stick around long. When the feeling comes I already had enough. So I do everything in my power to toss it out the door like smelly trash that has to go before it stinks out the whole house. Shake it like a dust mop sending all the dust flying. Then I shut the door as if it was a cold wind that howls to get in. Thank you for reading and commenting. May your night be filled with awesomeness.

      Thanks for sharing! Yes, feeling poorly is maybe the worse feeling of helplessness especially when it does not creep upon me. And, when it happens to someone I love dearly too. Prayer is important and keeping positive thoughts.

      I am so excited for you. I would ask billybuc he could give you some expert advice. You have gone farther than me. I am 99.99999 dreamer. The things that I have done haven't been great.That is why I have so much experience and doing and trying over and over again. I would love to read any of your work. You have really done so much in a short time. No matter what happens next remember the good will come and the not so good are just little obstacles to hurdle along the way. Thank you for thinking of me. Have a beautiful day.

      Oh yes I count my blessings every day. I have a morning prayer I wrote myself where I thank the Lord for each day and that I can think and do for myself. Hey, I am almost ready to tackle that self-publishing. Let me just run it by you I am going through CreateSpace. Still nervous about it but I will read through what they have to say before I even attempt anything.

      John Hansen My wife is feeling much better. It is amazing how a little touch of a cold can knock you for a loop. Eating right and taking our vitamins helps. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      Kari Poulsen Life is full of the most incredible thoughts anyone could ever imagine. It also can contain the worst evils we can conceive. Spending our time wisely. Making the right choice to improve our physical, emotional condition and the people around us makes sense. It also makes me eager to do more. Thank you for reading and sharing life along the way.

      Dream On, I hope you feel better soon, you deserve to be healthy for eternity with all your hard work & good deeds.

      Feeling healthy is something we all take for granted & you are right, we travel on autopilot until something aches or hurts. It’s better to be thankful each day for what we have & look for ways to be more awesome as we live to learn each day. Blessings to all.

      So true, you never notice your health until it's gone. I guess that is true for many things in life. We need to celebrate the things we don't notice, lol.

      Yes, Bro.

      For me the fact that all we ever have is the Eternal Now, can be quite scary. All is transient, like a passing cloud. Helps us to wake up, I suppose. Have a great day!

      Louise Powles We often set our goals high and keep on going until we can make them happen. Along the way we have little setbacks or roadblocks that cause us slow down even stop what we are doing. Until we regain our strength and vigor. Then we are back at it again. I hope we never lose sight of good health and taking care of our body first. Thank you for being the first to comment. Wishing you good health and wealth. Have a wonderful morning.
