There is no way to escape it, we all get sick.
Today that is my reality. It is a taste of death.
It is an opportunity to be grateful for the times of good health and hopeful for recovery.
It is a strange moment where some of us must be strong even though our bodies are weak. We push to continue on with our schedule, when all we want to do is lay down and die.
It is in these moments we learn we are not God, we are not immortal, we are frail human beings, whose lives are endangered at every moment.
Yet, we must be strong.
