Sickness is a sort of early old age; it teaches us a diffidence in our earthly state.Alexander Pope
We aren’t invincible on this earth and the Good Lord has many reminders for us. Death, illness, the need to maintain ourselves regularly in order to function. We are human. We do need a reminder once in a while that we have limitations. At the same time, we need daily reminders about how far we’ve come and that our present moment is valuable. I love my life, I want to keep breathing, and I appreciate the amazing things (even with its limitations), that our bodies can do.
I find that leaning and swaying helps to keep us up right.
