Every time I’m feeling under the weather, it seems to be a time for me to reflect upon my health. Most importantly, how grateful I am to have such good health most of the time.

As I lay in bed with body aches, a headache and congestion, I always say that once I’m up again, I won’t take my health for granted. And I don’t.

As inconvenient as a cold or the flu is, it’s a reminder for me to slow down and savor each and every minute of life.

Even if I’m feeling less than stellar. Because we’re never going to re-live this moment again.

That’s something to think about.
