Sniffles and Helping Others

So, I've been sick the past few days.  I hardly ever get sick and can count on one hand how many times I've had to go to the doctor this year for sickness.  I was having chills all day yesterday and some other not so fun stuff, so I made a trip to the doctor.  He automatically wanted to test me for strep, since it's apparently been going around.  After gagging me with that cotton swab, the test came back negative.  Thankfully, I was able to finish my take home test on time. I've started on some meds, so I should be better by next week.  Now is not the time to be sick!

It's a good thing, too because I have a lot to do.  Between working on things for my church, I am finishing up my last few assignments before finals.  I will also be helping my church serve a free Thanksgiving lunch on Thanksgiving day to the community.  Local firefighters, elderly people, and even friends of mine will be coming.  This is a huge undertaking, but everything is going along smoothly.  I can't wait to see the smiles on people's faces as they get some good food in their stomachs and surrounded by laughter and good conversation.  I have always enjoyed helping other people and that is something I hope to pass on to my nephew Mason when he's older.
