Tonight I am grateful for health. I supposed this is one of those things we take for granted when we have it, yet would give anything for when we don’t.  We toast to it, drink to it, wish for it, pray for it, and more often than not try everything we can to get it.

As many of you know, my little boy has had many ear infections which caused problems with his weigh gain and growth. We have not had a positive check-up in thirteen months, not once have we been given an all clear. Today was the day at the Ear Doctor’s office – today was that day I have been hoping for for over a year.

As I played blocks with him this afternoon I marveled at the little boy who, since his December tubes surgery, has grown an inch and a half, gained about three pounds and has grown into a whole new size clothing. He has also had four teeth come in and I can see two more pushing through. He has been busy, this little trooper, with growing and speaking and running and catching up to where he was supposed to be.

Yes, tonight this Momma is grateful for health. Grateful for the little things we take for granted everyday like hugs and kisses and being able to hear. I hope all Mommas with kids who hurt or are ill get a chance to feel this feeling of gratefulness at having a healthy child.
