Gratitude Post #12
Today I am grateful for the time when I can breathe without any obstruction. It's been a long time since I have been sick, but it came on suddenly today and now I am unable to breathe with ease. Whenever this happens, I remind myself to be more grateful to breathe easy when I can. It's like when I was pregnant with Olivia and I had whooping cough, pleurisy, and a broken rib. I kept thinking how when I was fully recovered, how grateful I would be that I wasn't coughing all day and night, and how easy it was to breathe in and out without pain in my chest. My doctor told me that I would cough for one hundred days. I coughed for 114. I guess you might say I am an overachiever. That or I was an old man while I was pregnant. Either way, I am so grateful that I am not coughing right now. And that I don't have pleurisy or a broken rib. And that there is only one Olivia.
