I'm Grateful: Healthy Children

Working as a doctor I learned all of the things that can happen to children. Illness that comes out of nowhere, genetic disorders that cause lifetime issues, psychological conditions that can tear families apart.

I am thankful for healthy children. A toddler that goes at 100% all day long and whose new found passion is harassing the cats. Teenagers who, for the most part (excluding the to be expected teenage angst) are happy, strong, athletic, and rarely ill. It is a blessing.

Health is a blessing. My family has had it's share of health challenges, but God gives us grace every day to deal with them.

Love the picture of Will with the cat! Poor thing!

Good health is such a blessing, that is for sure...and something never to take for granted.

indeed a blessing to have healthy children. my youngest daughter had severe skin problems when she was young and that was a rocky path to walk as a whole family..

health is indeed a blessing! someone was recently saying how hard it must be to have a toddler with severe nut allergies, the precautions, always carrying the epi pen, what a pain it must all be. and i said, "this makes him that much more special to me and when faced with all the other possibilities for illness out there: leukemia, autism, asthma, this is nothing."

There is nothing in the world I am more grateful for than my kids' health. We are incredibly fortunate to have 5 healthy, whole kids that are amazingly smart, talented, athletic and strong.

I count my blessings every day and always start with that one....
