This is day 5 of the grateful/thankful challenge. What I am grateful for today is my health. I am so so blessed when it comes to my health. I am so grateful I wake up feeling good each day and I have enough energy to take care of and play with my own children and the little one I babysit. I do not take me being healthy for granted. I thank God I don't have any health problems. Sadly, my younger sister has health problems and I thank God often that I don't. I know so many people have health problems and I am so sorry. I wouldn't want to live in pain every single day of my life. That has to be horrible... =( This picture is of me, taken a week ago.

I don´t take health for granted for a long time now. And I agree that we have to be grateful for it. When I look with disgust at my too thin skin and my too little hair, I also know that they are side effects from the chemo and that without it I would not be here. We have to learn to accept what we have and be grateful for it.

What a pretty photo of you. I'm glad you give God credit for your good health...He's so merciful, isn't He? For today's list, I'm grateful for a Godly husband. Drives me nuts sometimes, but wouldn't know what to do without him.

@1creekgirl Thank you! =) Absolutely, I thank God for every good thing in my life since He is the reason I have it. I also try to remember to thank God for the bad things too-although that is much harder at times. Aw, I'm so glad you have your husband and your happy!

@LovingMyBabies He's my best bud. And don't let anyone tell you romance ever has to end. I try to remind myself that the Bible tells us to thank God IN all things, but not FOR all things. I don't thank God for a torn rotator cuff, but I do thank Him for good surgeons and meds.

I have always taken my health for granted, because I have always been healthy, but it seems like over the last two years or so I've noticed my body isn't as resilient as it used to be. Now, I definitely don't take my health for granted, and I am thankful that I can still consider myself relatively healthy at this point in my life. What I am extremely thankful for, is for health insurance that allows me to go to the doctor on a routine basis to make sure that I stay healthy. Because without insurance, I would never be able to afford doctor visits, let alone hospital bills.
