Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, 
and cometh down from the Father of lights, 
with whom is no variation or shadow of turning.
James 1:17

Blessed are the people that know the joyful sound: 
They walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance.
Psalms 89:15

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; 
he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."
John 8:12

The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
Proverbs 4:18

The sun shall be no more thy light by day
neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee, 
but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
Isaiah 60:19

No one I'd rather be miserable with

We're two sick bunnies right now.  Sniffling, coughing, aching, feverish.  Repeat.  We take turns mustering energy to do a few dishes, make a meal, and take care of the other one.  We do miss our Mom's right about now.

We say things like, "Why don't you take a bath",  "Might it be a good idea to call off tomorrow?", "Here's some echinacea tea", and "How about we listen to James Herriot?"  When school must be done (such as my 28 page research paper that I turned in today), the other sits (or sleeps) sympathetically nearby for frequent encouragement.

In all honesty, this sickness has its positive points.  It has been over a month since we've gotten to spend this much time together.  Internal medicine rotation seems to have that affect on many couples.  It's so nice to be together, even if we are sleeping half the time.

And, as Barry so aptly put it as we lay limp underneath the covers around noon today, 
"There's no one I'd rather be miserable with than you"
