I Should Remember Gratitude Every Day
Thursday, April 18, 2019
I have had arthritis for years. I was first diagnosed with arthritis in my knees. It was very painful. After my fall breaking several bones I have started suffering from arthritis in my shoulders. One of my shoulders is replaced due to breaking the humeral head, in the fall. Now I have osteo arthritis in my left hand. I am in my 60s and pain and discomfort often is associated with age.
We went to dinner this evening. I believe that God put a man in my vision for me to notice. He is a paraplegic. He was such a happy man. He spoke to many people as they passed him. There was such a genuine feeling about this man. As I looked at him, I felt ashamed of my constant bitterness about my pain. I should be thankful for all that I do have. I remembered this quote this evening which I feel is appropriate.
