Today I am grateful that my lungs have recovered from having a horrible cough that took me out of commission for months. In just the last couple of days I have begun to feel normal again. Breathing is such a gift. Today I am writing a paper about mindfulness and it struck me how important breathing is to simply being present to each moment. Being so sick that breathing was difficult reminded me that we are fragile creatures with great resiliency. And while I won't treasure every moment of my life, some moments aren't about treasuring, I do treasure the gift of living them.
