Last Thursday, I called in sick! I have horrible sore throat and headache. I needed a rest. One day rest is enough for me to recover as I’ve proven so many times. I just need a Sara paracetamol tablet, lots of water intake and eat fresh guava.
Before the clock strike 12 noon, I felt a lot better. The tendency of me when I’m staying home is I can see lots of household chores that need a mom’s attention. I put used clothes in washing machine, fold dry clothes, tidy the kitchen a little bit and weed the front yard! It seems that I did accomplish a lot in just an hour! My son and I took our nap and we woke up feeling refreshed! I’m so happy that my day was productive even though I wasn’t able to go to school.
Today, I felt more relax. There are only few clothes to be washed, few of them to be folded. I watched New Police Story starred by Jackie Chan with my family, took a nap and now I’m ready to iron clothes. I have nothing to complain. I’m happy for my job and at the same time taking care of my family. I welcomed these with wide open arms and smile. I enjoy my life as a teacher, a mother and as a wife. Simple things are great gifts from God.
