Gratitude for Health and Well Being

After going through a period of ill health some years ago there is not a day that goes by that I don’t acknowledge my good health.  Lately it seems like almost every day I hear of someone that is ill, or passed away, or otherwise struggling.  I have had many periods of struggle myself, in all areas of my life, so when I am able to wake up and feel good either or both mentally and physically, I remind myself I have nothing to complain about.  I’m watching my father’s health decline in such a way that he cannot move on his own, he can’t see due to macular degeneration and lives with chronic pain.  These things don’t make sense in a way, – why some have to sustain such a high degree of suffering.  Some say it’s karma.  I don’t know.  but what I do know is that each moment of our lives is precious.  So today, even though I am stressed with all I have to do, I have the strength and energy to pull it off and I am so grateful……..
