I know the idea of "taking things for granted" is nothing new and pretty cliche, but it's definitely a common occurrence for many people. I think we have to constantly remind ourselves of the things we should be grateful for. My mom always says "count your blessings," and she couldn't be more right! Of course, it would be impossible to sit and count every single blessing. Speaking for myself, God has been beyond good to me. I'm not deserving, but yet he still blesses me. This makes me want to go out and live a life that is pleasing to him.....
I have been trying to recover from a cold/virus/fever for about 3 days now. Not a good feeling. The sore throat has been the worst part. I don't remember EVER having a sore throat this painful/irritating. I've been tossing,turning,and groaning throughout the night and day. I have been trying to stay hydrated, drinking water, tons of green tea w/lemon,honey,and peppermint.I've had soup and chili when my appetite came back. sigh. Moments like these make me appreciate being well. I've been on a health and fitness tip lately, and I've been telling myself that as soon as I feel better I'm going to leap for joy....literally! lol. I'm on spring break next week, so I have plenty of time to recuperate. I pray you all have been well :-) Ttyl
