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.
