If you don't have your health...

I once heard my neighbor say "If you don't have your health, you've got nothing". How true is this statement! Just ask someone who is suffering from any illness, or even you when you wake up with the flu and can't even get yourself out of bed to get something to drink.
There are a lot of things we can live without. You don't NEED a larger income, the new car, a body like a model, or even that cruise you've been planning for. What you do need is your health! Without your health, nothing else matters. You are paralzed.
I wish I take advantage of my high spirits and fun-loving nature, before I got sick. Not that I won't be healed...soon, I will. I just wish I hadn't let all the years, days, even just an afternoon slip away without enjoying every single second.

On a much more serious note: I hate being sick. I miss my health. I miss the way I was when I felt good and happy and healthy. Hopefully, this has taught me to never forget how grateful I am for each and every healthy day. And I hope you don't either.

True true, I always seem to realize this when I am sick. Then I forget again when I'm well. I guess we can feel lucky that our sickness is temporary. We don't have any diseases. It definitely makes me want to make the most of life.
