We just do it.
A close friend of ours was telling us this past weekend that she
ended up in the emergency room at the hospital.
After never really "shaking" bronchitis she'd had,
she wound up visiting a walk in clinic.
A severe oxygen deficiency prompted an immediate
emergency trip to a hospital where she learned,
had she not gone, she would have lived only 3 more hours.
I could not even imagine.
Imagine not having her as our friend.
Her daughter not having her mother.
Her husband not having his wife.
Her knowing that 3 hours was all she had left
to take nothing else for granted.
The following is a quote from the song
by Pink Floyd.
"Long you live and high you'll fly
and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
and all you touch and all you see
is all your life will ever be."
I need to start being thankful for the less obvious.
