It's amazing how becoming ill can change all of your plans. You are going along, making plans, doing your thing, working, taking care of your family, and carving out time for fun. And then something happens. You get sick. One degree off from your normal temperature, and all of a sudden the brakes are on and everything else is off!
If it were only the one degree, it wouldn't be so bad, but it was more than that; it was a few degrees for a few days, and with a few days off, nothing is the same. The entire pace is off, and plans are different, proving how life is one big improvisation if you do it right.
Flexibility from day to day while working toward big goals, big dreams, and happy things is essential for life. Fevers are not my favorite, but the stopping that it forced me to do helped me slow down and realize how many things are going right, and I also could see how many people I have in my corner. I am well loved, and that keeps me going. The improvisations we encounter are sometimes the best part of this life!
