ginger is good for your throat!

DSC00667.jpg

There is a lot of woman who works after having a baby at work.
I’d say our company is a good company since women can keep working after it.
There was news that many women got fired when they took maternity leave.
But it’s not unthinkable at our company.
Not only mothers at the same division but also mothers at the other division talk to me.
They say “ How’re you and your bump doing? “ or “ Your bump is becoming bigger. “
I’m more than delighted they’re kind and nice to me.
Time flies and I’m 7 months pregnant already.
Getting pregnant is greater than I imagined.
Also the bigger my bump becomes, the more pleasure I am and I think this moment is
valuable.
I wanna meet my baby soon but I’m gonna miss being pregnant….
I have a very strong body but I was coming down with something this week.
I had a sore throat but I couldn’t gargle with mouthwash, take a medicine and suck on a
lozenge, So I had been drinking a tea with grated ginger and apple this week.
Not only my throat soothing also getting well. It’s very good for your throat!
When your throat hurts, try to suck a slice of ginger instead of lozenges.
The spicy tasting feels very nice for you sore throat like lozenges.
Try it!
By the way I took this picture in Nikko when I went traveling last month.

Please take good care of yourself, Aya. I am a firm believer in ginger. My mother always told me to add ginger to chicken soup. It helps with nausea too.

Please know the people of Japan are very much in our thoughts and prayers. The news reports here in the US are very shocking and sad. I can't seem to take myself away from the t.v. For any length of time.

Marina said...

We're shocked with everything we see and hear at the news! Stay at home safely! Is anybody there with you? Is your family ok?
I pray everything is stopped! I wish it was just a bad dream....!!!
