So That's What It's Like...

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

A few days ago I was nearby when a tire on a hand truck exploded - loudly. Now I understand what it's like to hear poorly, particularly on one side. The ringing in my ears is getting less intense, and my hearing is returning, slowly. Dr's visit scheduled today. But this is yet another demonstration of how tenuous my hold on living another day in good health really is. A brief and unexpected event could affect how I live for the rest of my life. Overall, the experience makes me grateful for the time I've had and the health I've enjoyed. It's a wonderful gift.

    I hope your ears are returning to normal.

    And, yes, life is tenuous. Good to be grateful and recognize the blessings present in each moment, seize them and have joy.

    Take care and keep that gratitude going. It will serve you well.
