I am so very happy to say I am feeling a little better. I CAN BREATH and that is such a good thing. Breathing is just one of the many wonders we just take for granted. That is until you are struggling with it. I was feeling like I just couldn’t get quite enough air. Each breath came with a raspy gurgling sound. I am still a little short of breath and a little raspy but all in all a big improvement.
This may even sound a little strange but it is almost like I need a little episode like this to at times bring my thinking back to my reality. That I would continue to see the wonders, the beauty in each day, one day at a time. Life is so worth living and I never do forget that fact. I appreciate each day I am given. I have been given extra time and for that I am so very grateful. Every night as I go to bed I say a little prayer in which I thank God for having given me that day. I ask that His will be done in my life but ask that I be given that night and do wake up in the morning. In the morning, it is thank you for night and please give me this day ahead. I appreciate my life and all the wonders in it. I have a good life, I know that.
Every time I have a “medical” event, it is like a slap in the face or something. It clears my head to see the wonders around me. Some how it seems without even realizing it, I had allowed myself to some extent anyway to be come I suppose complacent. Starting to take things for granted. Still appreciative of my life and everything in it but I realize I would be starting to take it for granted. When you start taking things for granted it is inevitable that at least some of the shine or wonder is taken away from it. Never take anything, anyone or even life for granted.
I suppose is it like the ying and the yang. To really experience joy you must have experience a little sadness or you have no point of refence to be able to regognize and appreciate the difference.
