Have you ever imagined what it’s like to lay in bed for more than four months without any idea when you would be able to sit again? No? I’ll tell you what it’s like; because that’s the situation I am in.
It makes you realize what a great blessing it is to be able to sit. It makes you realize what a wonderful thing it is to be able to look at the TV straight. It makes you wonder why you didn’t realize the blessing of being able to sit, until you were not allowed to do that anymore.
It makes you notice the patterns and details of your ceiling. It makes you notice that your fan needs to be cleaned. It makes you notice how rarely you looked upwards when you had the option not to.
It also makes you ashamed of the fact that you were not thankful enough when you could stand until you couldn’t….and then you weren’t thankful enough for being able to sit until you couldn’t……and now you aren’t thankful enough for being able to do everything that you can.
And most of all, it makes you realize that lying down all day long is not that bad a thing after all. It makes you wonder if anything is that bad a thing after all.
It makes you wonder what all the fuss is about.
Maybe….not being able to sit makes you wiser.
