I've probably mentioned this before, but I volunteer at a local hospital.
Can I just tell you all how extremely grateful I am for my health?
I have decided that absolutely everything can go wrong with the body. Everything.
And I only hear a tiny smidgen of it at my info desk.
Do you know how sad it is to direct someone to the ICU?
The hospital is a place people are supposed to be healed, but from my experience, it is also where they go to die.
Everyone in my family is healthy. I am healthy. I am so, so grateful.
*Note: Sorry this wasn't a great analogy or something. I wish I could give examples, but I can't say anything about the people I see at the hospital.
