This morning, after a hot and disturbed humid night of tossing and turning, I wandered out into the new week to find the air NOT any longer hot, but cool. Immediately I was grateful for wearing a little three quarter sleeved jacket. I chose it because it matched the singlet top I wore with the tailored trousers – and in the office it is always chilly ( air conditioning – don’t you love artificial environments??).
I crossed the road and just up ahead of me was a smallish woman labouring towards the railway station on crutches. I wandered closer and noticed she had NOT any use of her legs. Her frame was moved laboriously using her upper body strength and the crutches alone.
And here in a flash and just one second, I was grateful for my health and my strength and I realised JUST how blessed I am. Yes, it has been a tumultuous year. Yes there are people I love , and whom I have loved doggedly and long for many years, no longer there. BUT I still have so much to be grteful for.
And it changed my complexion on today.
