Thinking about how happy I am to be healthy
My husband and I are in the midst of a cold. Mine is almost over. Whenever I have the sniffles, I get sort of down. I long for the days of easy breathing, no tissues and soundly sleeping. But somehow when I do get back to my normal self, I really only appreciate it for a day or two.
Every time I ever visit the doctor or hospital with my children I am especially thankful for their health. It merely takes remembering that some families are dealing with all sorts of health issues that makes me appreciate our own health. I say a prayer for any parent dealing with sick children every day.
Finally it was eleven years ago this week that I lost my father to cancer. It's taken eleven years to be thankful that I had a healthy, wonderful father for most of my life. Thinking about this anniversary makes me give thanks that the people I love are healthy right now.
Now off to enjoy my good health!
