It’s the last day of the week and thanks to everyone for joining me on the first week of #IslandMeetsCity Blog Challenge! I thought it might be fitting for #SerendipitousSunday to close the week with a simple reflection.
I’ve had a couple of health ups and downs this week. Yesterday I mentioned I had a flu and while common for many people, it scares me a lot since that was one the first things that triggered my autoimmune condition. A flu led to tonsilitis which led to streptococcal infection which led to rheumatic fever which led…uh well you get the picture. For those who follow my Autoimmunee blog, you know my story with all that, if not and if you want to know more, have a read here.
Anyways, so yeah I was a bit worried as you can understand. But it got me thinking. Just how lucky I am to have my family and especially through all of this. I’ve been going in and out of the country for the past few years now, and yeah that sounds really great and exciting…and it is, but sometimes one can feel very homesick and a little lonely. The term ‘homesick’ is a little complicated for me since I have two homes and as they say home is where family is, so it’s a little hard when you have family all over the place. Would it make sense if I said I’m most comfortable and most homesick…in both countries?
Covered in all my bed covers and numerous fluffy blankets, even though I felt kinda terrible with this flu and all, I couldn’t help but notice how I felt warm and safe. And it wasn’t just the blankets. My heart was warm and fuzzy. I am so blessed to have my family. To be taken care of and loved unconditionally is a beautiful thing. Have you felt loved or shown the people you love just how much lately? Don’t wait for a silly flu, tell them today 🙂
See ya next week 😛
