The medicine I need doesn't come in a bottle; it cannot be prescribed by a doctor. The medicine I need is found in laughter with friends. It rests in the knowing smiles and touches from my husband. It's the witty quips and nonsense from my son. The cures that ail me are bone-crushing hugs from my family and a shared understanding that belongs to only us. It's the simplicity of a smile found in the seconds we are fortunate enough to be in each other's company. My heart is full, my smile large, and my entire world complete, surrounded by those I love. I carry the medicine I need in my heart, it's with me always.
