After my twinners were removed from my body, due to some complications and such, there was a period of six+ months that sitting down or standing up involved much pain and careful movement.
In the years since, I will regularly think (usually after flopping myself on the couch or jumping out of a chair) how wonderfully blessed I am to have a healthy body.
As I've healed from this latest sickness, I realized that it had been longer and longer between those kinds of thoughts. And I don't recall thinking anything like it since the summer at least.
Perhaps this latest bout, among lessons of patience and faith, was a reminder to be grateful for my health and my family's health.
Did it hurt? No? Then you are one lucky person!
Take a deep breath through your nose.
Possible? Catch the delightful scents of Christmas, to boot? Lucky you!
Did you have the strength to shower AND get dressed today? To make a meal for your family? To stand and walk across the room?
Good health is an amazing blessing!
I am taking great pleasure in swallowing without pain and having the strength and energy to be Mom again. And with antibiotics to kill this sinus infection, soon I will enjoy the smells of Christmas, too.
It's the little things:)
Merry Christmas! Happy late Thankful Thursday!
What are you thankful for today?
