From day one, with the first breath or lack of breath in those first new moments of life, I have experienced some sort of health issue. It’s just been a part of my life. Today I am grateful that no matter what, my body has fought for me, insists on being here, demands to be better. I’m not sure how much is pure spirit or just plain denial. But I am grateful for the fight, the wins and the loses. I was not get chosen for an easy route, a simple and straightforward path. I was given less and because of that perhaps I was actually given more. And I am grateful.
