Sometimes it Takes Time

Today’s post is directly inspired by my current condition.  I have caught a “something.”  I have been calling it a cold but honestly, it feels a little bit like the flu.  I. Am. Miserable.  To know me is to know a few things… I have a high tolerance for pain and illness… I’m pretty resilient….
