It’s interesting just how much we take for granted – until – suddenly that’s taken away – and we realise the true value of what we had.
This morning I’m realising again just how valuable my health is – and how often I guess – I take it for granted . On Monday I was fortunate enough to get my vaccination against Covid – being very impressed by the friendly and extremely organised way in which so many of us received that vaccination in such a short time.
However – for the past 3 days I have been quite ill – firstly vomiting almost every hour for 15 hours. During that time – and the following two days I have been unable to eat – and only taken sips of water – so of course am left feeling rather weak.
Today however I am feeling much better – have eaten some toast – and am managing to sit here to write my Blog post – something I didn’t think would be possible this week.
So – today – I truly value my health – and thank God – that I am alive and well.
I’m sure that’s something we have all come to recognise during this past year – deprived of contact with those we love – the freedom to roam as – when – and where we wanted – watching those we love suffer – even losing those we love – maybe living in fear – certainly living with frustration – we recognise the value of all those things.
I guess when we can get back to more ‘normal living’ we will appreciate so many of the things we used to take for granted.
I love this quote – “I think that when the dust settles – we will realise how little we need – how very much we actually have – and the true value of human connection”
Who of us are not missing – and recognising – the value of human contact – of seeing a human face – not on a screen! – of holding a hand – of giving a hug – those things we did before – never recognising the value of them – until they were no longer part of our lives.
I never want to underestimate the value of so much in my life – want to live with an awareness of how important each moment can be – take full advantage – live fully – love fully and value everything – and everyone – in my life.
Blessings to you all – Lois
