Two years ago I had some confusing health challenges. From about October to March I was getting sick every week and couldn't figure out why. Multiple doctors and blood tests later it turned out to be nothing serious. I was given some pills and supplements to take and life got back to normal. Occasionally the same sick feelings will come back and I'll have an "off" day.
Yesterday was an off day. It had been so long since I had felt sick like that that I forgot how terrible it can be. I know, this does not sound like a "grateful for" subject matter. But it really is. It made me realize that I've been back to "normal" for a while now. I haven't had to worry about missing a day out of every week because I can't eat anything or do anything. I haven't had to worry about what's wrong with me or missing a class or missing work. I'm grateful for very small health problems because it could be something so much worse.
And I'm grateful for prayer because yesterday prayer was the only thing that kept me going through all the important and special things that went on (like baptizing my very good friend).
What are you grateful for?
