chicken soup for the body
We've had a rough winter actually a rough year. I know that many people have. After almost three months of fighting colds and looking forward to being well, I was hit with a doozie 2 days ago. Mom had been home sick for over a week. But she is always more concerned with others than herself. Last night lying in bed craving Lipton Chicken soup, I called her and we were both talking, coughing, talking, sneezing. Not a pretty picture. She suggested maybe John go to the store and get me some soup. I told her no, he is just getting over a bad sinus infection. A cup of tea and some toast will be fine. About 20 min. later the phone rings. Its, mom " I will be there in 8 min. ( and when she says 8 min. she means 6 min.) with some warm chicken noodle soup. I couldn't believe it, she had gotten out of her chair feeling lousy to make chicken soup for me. I am still amazed. And that broth and ramen noodles was better than a filet mignon. Love poured into my body and healing to my soul. I have been truly blessed and I know it! Now I am sure that if the world had even half of my mom's generous nature, there would be no war, no hunger, no lonliness. She is my hero and the chicken soup for my soul.
