I wasn't exactly up to arguing so I took myself and my stupid cough home and worked from home this afternoon. The boss and my replacement were also both out today with the flu.
This stupid flu has got all of us and we simply don't have time to be stuffing around with being sick - arrgghh I hate being sick. Thank you Karen for the Vicks suggestion (I used to do this with my kids) and Larissa, the cough medicine is definitely an option for hubby and the boys but my body and any opiate based drugs do not mix - good thing I never considered drug taking as an option - it would have killed me straight up.
I watched a documentary tonight which I wanted to share (some of you may have seen it - but the story is so darn cute - this is a 4.38 min snippet from the doco but is worth watching) This story reinforces the fact that everyone needs someone, even animals - we all need a friend, someone to lean on, someone to share with.
Sometimes we need to be able to reach out to someone who may be suffering, just to let them know they're not alone. To have a friend you need to be a friend - no-one should have to be lonely, yet sadly too many people are lonely or alone because someone hasn't bothered to reach out.
The elephant and the sheep who became best friends, just goes to prove that even the most unlikely matches can be true and enduring friendships.
Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget
