Virginia Wolfe "On Being Ill": "how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed..."
It was difficult to choose a blessing this week. As I sat next to David in sacrament meeting today, singing the hymns of the restoration, I was deeply touched by the wonder of my life. The blessings of my week passed through my mind, one after another, each one as precious as the next. But among all my blessings, I was deeply grateful to be healthy again. At the beginning of the week David picked up this prescription for me and it was my sweet salvation from sheer misery. This little bottle and a few gallons of cranberry juice were the greatest blessings of my week. How grateful I am to live in a time and place where relief is so readily available. There are few feelings as delightful as the relief of waking up "better." And this gentle grace made all of my blessings taste sweeter this week, and made me remember what a gift each healthy morning really is.
