Lucky Number 10?

Day Ten of the Plague:

Life is looking up, folks!

As of right now I've been fever free for about 14 hours and, though that has happened a few times before, what hasn't happened in conjunction with that is that all of my other symptoms are definitely waning.  

There is a light at the end of the plague tunnel and, by george, I think I see it!  

Praise the Lord.

Good timing too because, though I like to think I have been a pretty good sport, the past 48 hours have really tested my attitude.  I admit, I was becoming quite the grumpy patient.  It's hard not to be when you just don't feel well for such a long amount of time.

Not to get aaall philosophical on you or anything... but it did get me thinking.

Isn't our health such a blessing?
Something we take for granted each and every day until it's snatched away from us {usually only for a few days at a time} and we feel like we're being denied what we have some right to.

It's interesting to come to grips with the reality that I have no right to my own health.  
My body is not my own.  
Every day I live in good health is a blessing; a gift from the Lord I do not deserve.

Well that puts things in a different perspective...
