Turning the corner…..with magical hummingbirds

After a week of flu like symptoms, I can feel that I have turned the corner.    In a couple of days I I should be back to my normal, energetic self……of course with the help of the Magical Hummingbirds:)

As I said in my  post at the beginning of last week….I have been blessed for much of my life with very good health, and so am acutely aware of the changes that happen both physically and mentally when things are not quite right.

It’s as if my world of colour diminishes.

However, as the corner is turned, the colour becomes brighter and the desire to spread some of that colour around with brush and paint ever stronger…..Yes:)

Most importantly I am reminded of just how fortunate I am.

And to never take good health and all that accompanies it for granted….

Have a day filled with colour and magical hummingbirds.

The fragility of life…

Life is fragile, like the dew hanging delicately on the grass, crystal drops that will be carried away on the first morning breeze.    From the Book Buddhist Offerings.

I have been blessed with good health, and so even a nasty virus or flu like symptoms stop me in my tracks.

Such a nasty little bug hit me this week.     There I was going about life and doing all the things I take for granted and then bam everything changed…..

Anyone reading this would think that I had been struck down with some serious illness…..when what I have will simply slow  me down for a few days – (probably not a bad idea) and then I will  be back to normal again.

What I am feeling is a sense of deep gratitude.    Gratitude for the years of good health I have enjoyed.    A reminder to never take good health for granted.
