A short rest this afternoon turned into a longer respite – and a cough when I arose.  Funny how a slight tickle can turn into a full throated cough in mere minutes.  Now, if I breathe a bit too deeply I begin to try clearing my throat.  That leads an expulsion into my sleeve.  And finally, the frustration of knowing this may lead to a not-so-good forced rest over the next few days!

I’m going to be praying for clear sailing instead of stormy days to come!
