We all struggle with one thing or another at some point in the day. Often times we do not even realize that we are having some difficulty. Yesterday, I was able to hold my grandson who was born premature at 30 weeks. He weighed less than 3 pounds, but boy, is he a fighter.
He is fighting for his life and the nurses are so wonderful with his care. Too often we take things for granted, things like how our bodies are created. Our bodies are created in such a way that we can prevent many of the chronic illness many suffer if only we properly take care of ourselves.
I am learning some great lessons from that little one about the struggles I face, some of which are actually self-made and if I take care of myself by eating wholesome foods, drink pure water and get enough quality exercise then I, too, will be successful in some of the struggles I face daily. But that is nothing compared to the challenge my grandson faces each day.
Learning to appreciate each and every victory no matter how small and celebrate the big ones.
