Grateful for Health

My husband has been ill for the past 2 weeks – so ill that he has been sleeping for many hours (unusual for him) and has not gone to work. As I watch him going through the illness, I think of others whom I know who are in continual pain. I think, too, of a film I watched recently – You’re Not You starring Hilary Swank. The film is the story about  a woman who has ALS.

As I watched her going through the pain of her illness (Hilary Swank does an excellent job of portraying her character), the thought running through my mind was “I am so lucky that I am not sick”.

This week I am grateful for my health and that I am able to experience my days without pain.

  1. This week I feel grateful the same thing I posted my smile about – family. I visited my family over a long weekend and am thankful for them and the relationship I have with them.

  2. I am grateful that this week has been one in which my horrible skin rash has cleared up! And even as I say it, I am also a bit worried, as it has cleared and returned a couple of times. Hopefully this is it, though!

    I am also grateful to be free of back pain…and realize that the massages and my subsequent stretches each morning have aided in this.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  3. Hi Colline! It’s true that we tend to forget that there are people out there who are in pain/suffering much more than we do. We tend to look at our problems and difficulties with such pessimism that we don’t remember thanking the Almighty for whatever he has bestowed on us. I have a friend, who writes down 10 things that she is grateful for, each morning. I think it’s a great way to feel blessed and thank GOD for whatever we have – whether material or abstract.
    I hope your husband has completely recovered by now..


    1. Yes, he has. Thank you.
      We can start by being grateful for just one thing a day – and it makes us more aware of our surroundings as we look for something different everyday. It certainly changes a person’s mindset.
