This week’s Thankful Thursday is for something I know I don’t always appreciate enough until I no longer have it. Health. Don’t worry, nothing is seriously wrong with anyone on Team Cartwright. But this past week all three of us human teammates have had various illnesses. Nothing big, Ben and Pat had colds, and I just had a little flu bug. But it was enough to make me remember how lucky we are to be healthy.
Pat and I are fortunate to not get sick very often. We are extremely fortunate that Ben has had very few illnesses in his short life. This is just his second cold ever. He handles it like a trooper. I just feel so bad for the poor baby, he wants to play but is all congested. Of course I am happy that he is at the age where one of the best cures is mommy’s hugs.
Again, this was just a normal little blip that every family goes through. I know there are so many people who have to handle such heavy burdens with the health of themselves and their families. But it never hurts to take the time to be grateful for the blessing of good health. Today I am thankful for my health, and the health of my family.
