through sickness and health

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
"God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame."

you give me roses
i give you hagen-daz

me
sick  in bed
all today
yesterday
feeling crummy

you
grouchy when the home teachers come
give me that look
when i pass the phone

inhale Afrin
drink loads 
cough, sneeze, and blow
over and over and over

you
find humor in my misery
smile at me when i look so wretched
enjoy the steam filling our room


we are sweethearts

Cristie!!!! I literally was just trying to find you on google somehow! I switched to using a google reader and then removed my blogroll , but so many of my blogs either didn't transfer or are rss feeds that just didn't offer the right way.. I don't know.
I cannot believe you just sent me that comment at the exact moment I was getting all the Christie blogs :) !!!!!

We are connected by a higher power my sweet dear forever friend. How are you?
( and I know this is a crazy long comment but I'm missing you as well )
