Orange Juice


“More orange juice?” I asked if she wanted more orange juice. I heard it is good for the body especially when one is sick. My friend is sick, in bed, and blowing her nose. Coughs are coming too. I prayed for her, hoping she will feel better soon. If you read this blog, please send us prayers for good health.

As she lay in bed, I didn’t know what to do. She had on a sick face, no smiles, no winking. It was serious. I began to worry. She has not been sick for a while now. Maybe it’s time to get sick, I convinced myself. I asked her how I can help? She said three things. I need tea, sleep, and food.


Her tea was made with lemon, ginger, honey and a pack of cold and flu tea.


This was a challenge. Tossing and turning, she opened her eyes. Blink. Blink. There was not enough sleep. She had a headache.


She ate watermelon, tons of purple grapes, some pineapple and drank Naked fruit shakes. I was able to make her some nice hot pho.


If you have a friend who is sick, make sure to take care of them. Pray. Get them what they need and be present. Encourage them to eat, sleep and drink water.

Here is a link to tips to cure colds and flu the natural way. I hope you find this helpful.

Short letter to a friend:


I wished I could take the pain away. I hope you feel better and that you can get well quickly. Although you have work, and countless action items, you strive and go above and beyond. I admire your hard work and dedication although you are not feeling well. Please make sure to take care of yourself and rest well. #prayingyougetwellsoon
