I pretty much never get sick. Incredible but true, I haven’t had a cold in over 5 years maybe even closer to 10 years. I’m just lucky that way. It wasn’t until 5 days ago until I realized how lucky.
The flu hit me super hard on Thursday. I keep thinking: How can people do this several times a year? I am so glad this doesn’t happen to me. I mean really, really glad. It’s awful being sick. I have so much newly discovered sympathy for people who get colds!
How many other things are we lucky to have, but don’t ever experience the opposite, to remind us just how lucky?Really made me think. I drank ice cold water and felt so lucky for indoor plumbing and safe drinking water. I burrowed deeply into my cozy bed and felt so lucky to have a warm home. I just can’t imagine how awful it must be to be sick and on the street.
Every day, all day, there is so much about which to remember to be grateful!
I know I’ll be grateful to be able to get back to my normal life once this flu is finished with me!
Smile. Be Happy.
