A word of gratitude

I've been sick for almost a week and I've learned a few things as a result:

1. Slow down.
2. Appreciate the things you can do because you'll miss them when you can't.
3. Slow down.
4. The world can live without you for 2 days. Take the time off to recuperate properly or you'll just stay sick.
5. Slow down.

I'm so thankful for: My wife who brought me medicine (and fed it to me in bed) and who spent time cooking me a pot of delicious soup (that I devoured in a day!) and who loves me even when I'm snotty and smelly and don't want sex ;)

I'm also thankful for my programming skills and how I can use them to feed us every month and keep a roof over our heads. I take this for granted and I shouldn't.

And, weird as it may seem, I'm thankful for temporary sickness that brings me lessons like this. I feel amazing knowing that my body is winning and I can do normal things properly again. This week is going to be an amazing week! So thank you to that big powerful energy that surrounds us (you know who you are ;)) and to my soul who reminds me of who and what I really am :)
