sonny boy, I think chronic illness does makes us more in touch with our sensitive side.
I think because we feel pain and so many emotions we are more empathetic to others.
We find out what is really important...our family and friends. I am truly blessed, my health may not be the best but I do have so many blessings in my life for which I'm

Many of us here are animal lovers, myself included. I have 2 cats that I love. Our pets
are like family and they help us get through bad times too.

Being rich in spirit is more valuable than a bank full of money. Sonny boy, I believe
you are rich in spirit. There is a blessing in pain...it gives us an opportunity to find
out who we really are...it teaches us to have hope and faith that things will get better.

Thank you sonny boy for the thought provoking post. Wishing you and your wife well!

I agree, Sonny Boy - we appreciate good things so much more, and a lot of what we used to stress over just rolls right off - because it really doesn't matter.  We also have to be more flexible and learn to roll with the punches....we have no choice!  smilewinkgrin   And, we're more likely to believe other people who are going through a hard time even though WE can't see it.
