I have been down with food poisoning over the last couple of days.
Being hooked to iv lines and numerous medications,vomitting and stooling intractibly,it was very easy to become bitter and begin to ask why this was happening to me..But even in the midst of all that pain and weakness,I had light shine on my thought and I began to think of so many ways in which I'm grateful.
It could have been worse,I could I have died,many others have died,but I'm alive.

So I'm thankful!

For life,for the sun,the cool breeze,for provision,for love,for family,for laughter,for friendship,I'm thankful.

Be thankful today,it helps you see light even in the darkest of places.

Just think,it could have been worse.
Thankfullness brings hope.

So happy you are better

I am sorry to hear that you were so sick but I am thankful you are well again. I have a friend who writes down 10 things that she is thankful for each day. As you say, it helps when the darkness engulfs us.
