Thankful for Good Health.

"The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling."

~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990

I'm thankful for my health. I'm thankful for when my body is free from a sore throat, achy and tired limbs, and a 100.2 degree fever. I'm thankful when my I feel fully rested and rejuvenated. I'm thankful that I feel like this most days.

Sadly, today is not one of those days.

Boy can I relate...and I will be thankful when I don't have to carry 20 extra pounds on my gut...which in turn makes my back really, really, sore. And I am also thankful when I can breath through my nose all night, and when I can cough and sneeze without wetting myself....so goes pregnancy. Hope you get feeling better.

Emery, I'm so sorry you are not feeling well. Wish I could do something from afar. Hope you're able to get some rest.
