“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.”
- Dorothy Canfield Fisher

I have spent my day being reminded of the value of health. It's true, though, isn't it? When you are miserably ill you are reminded how wonderful it is to be healthy - to have no pain, to have ready use of your body. It is so easy to take simple things like the ability to get out of bed in the morning for granted, to forget to find joy in them.
