Sometimes all you can do is give upPosted: December 18, 2012
But what avail the largest gifts of Heaven,
When drooping health and spirits go amiss?
How tasteless then whatever can be given!
Health is the vital principle of bliss.
~ James Thompson
Mr. Thompson’s sentiments seem a little extreme, but I can relate to the general idea. The flu has infiltrated my defenses. “Drooping” describes how I feel very well. Rather than fight it, I’m giving up and going to bed, at least for today. I’ll be back soon.
