Wow! It’s finally, Friday! I must confess this week has been quite challenging for me. I got to work on Monday morning, and all of a sudden i fell ill. Just like that, i was at the clinic every night until Thursday morning. Indeed a lot could change in a matter of seconds, minutes, hours, or even days.
However, this made me reminisce about how much I did take sound mind, good health, strength, eating without a pipe in my body, and many more for granted. There were times in these past few days i craved and wished everything was normal just as they were before Monday morning. They were moments I just wanted to eat like everyone else, but I could not. Fun fact is, this little roller-coaster drew me closer to God. I know it sounds very cliche, but i have come to appreciate God’s gift of life even more. I am more than grateful that I am alive, strong and healthy. I am even more thankful to God for watching over me and using this medium to draw me even closer to Him. This whole experience did bring me to another realm of gratitude to God and my ever-loving family and friends who were there for me every time I reached out.
This week has taught me that sometimes it is easier to focus on what we do not have, rather than what we have. It is essential to take time out and remember all that God has done for us, which somehow many of us take for granted. If we are honest to ourselves, there are tones of things to be grateful for, even if it is just for life. Have you ever thought of the fact that so many individuals do not get a chance to make it as far as you have? Why not be thankful for your strength to face your troubles and overcome your sorrow. Why not be grateful for everything, i mean the ones you are aware of, and the ones you probably aren’t.
I hope today’s blog post speaks a message to you just like this week took me back to a moment of reflection. Have a blessed weekend.
