Thankful Thursday - March 6, 2008

|



Over the last week, my daughter, my husband and I have all been sick with one nasty stomach bug. And, I suspect that by the time this week is over my son will have also fallen victim to the same bug.

As I have watched each of us struggle with this virus, I am reminded how fortunate we are to have our good health. At the most, this virus is an inconvenience, but it is a reminder that we are so very fortunate that is all we face. We do not have any long-term or life-threatening illnesses. We do not have to wake up each day wondering if we will be able to get out of bed or if we have only this day to tell our loved ones how much we do love them.

Thank you, Lord, for our health. I pray we never take for granted this gift you have given us.

Amen for our health! You just don't appreciate "feeling good" until you've felt really bad!

Glad you are getting over that nasty bug, he came to our house too, NO FUN.

Happy TT!

Thank you for a great reminder, Melanie! All four of us had the flu recently and I'm afraid I had a bad attitude about it. Next time I'll think twice before complaining! God bless you!

So true. We tend to take our health for granted until we don't have it. Thanks for the reminder.
