Sore Throats Soothers

I had every intention of writing last week, but alas, my plans were foiled once again. I hope all of you out there in the world had a better week than I did!

Not only that, but some friends of ours from church and our family have had the same thing, generally beginning with some congestion and a cold, developing into an upper respiratory or bronchial problem. Several individuals, including myself and our own little Tinkerbell, ended up with some ear pain as well. I think it was last week that I had my ear pain.
