One of the best things that has happened to me since getting sick is feeling like every day is a blessing. I know that sounds like a cliche but it’s true for me. I love looking out the window to watch the birds, cuddling with my daughter, being able to attend church services, enjoying food that I’ve never eaten before, watching my furbaby Little Bit slide on our floor, watching the sunset, etc.
I don’t need expensive things any more. I can do quite well with spending time with my family and friends in my messy house, laughing and having fun together. I don’t need to visit Caribbean villa rentals. I can stay home and curl up on the couch to read a book or listen to some music. I can play board games with my youngest daughter or talk to my oldest daughter on the phone. These are some of my favorite things!
