Linking up with Dayle for Simple Pleasures
Health is not valued till sickness comes.-Thomas Fuller
Being sick is no fun. Last week and even on the weekend I was really sick. First the flu....the Norwalk...it's a brutal kind of flu.....then kidney stones and then.....a pulled muscle in my arm. It's been a week of realizing how fragile we really are....and how little control we have over most things. Being so sick and getting better pretty quickly reminded me of how grateful I am because....
-I have today....and today I'm healthy and everything I need I have - food, water, shelter, love.
-The sick stuff I got hit with didn't last long - unlike those who are hit with kidney failure, MS, cancer, and so many other debilitating things.
-my family loves me and they show it in tangible ways. They completely took over and did whatever had to be done in and around the house including taking gentle care of me.
-friends who found out and made themselves available for me and my family.
-My body - In the past I felt separate from it. Now I appreciate that He made us amazing....our bodies are awesome and do so much for us.
