... after yesterday's near miss with catching a cold, it dawned on me that the night before was not one of well rest ... making me more susceptible to a weaker immune system .. rest ... or lack of it .. should not be taken lightly. Lack of sleep, stress and a poor diet all contribute to catching an illness. Last night I started watching "Gone With The Wind" .. I didn't make it past the first 30 minutes or so ... but did take notice that Scarlett O'Hara, while attending a fine bbq-ball-all-day-affair took time out of the afternoon for a nap at the plantation. Rest well, fare-thee-well is how I describe the need for quite time .. naps .. a good night sleep .. to ward off illness. While the rest of my family has the sniffles, sneezes, achoos, aches, sore throats ... I will be ever so thankful to have avoided, once again, their BUGS.
