Migraines and Thankfulness


When my husband walked into our room earlier, I told him I had a headache. Then I describe it as, "You know, the kind that makes you feel like you're going to toss your lunch." He immediately said, "Migraine!" He's familiar with these himself. After I asked him to turn off a lamp, I realized it has been awhile since I've had a migraine. This is evident because I didn't even recognize it right away. I remained still and drifted off to sleep. Waking later, I knew the migraine was gone. Sometimes I can sleep it away.

I was thankful this crushing headache was gone, but I was also thankful it happened. It made me see again where I take things for granted. Not having a migraine for quite sometime was something I hadn't appreciated. It causes me to think of the many things others deal with that I've never endured. This is the one area I have improved in somewhat but not enough, I need to be more thankful.

Lord, thank you for the infinite blessings you've sent to me. Thank you for each breath I take, for You breathing my being to physical life and for the Holy Spirit's breath of spiritual life. Amen
