I Am Thankful

Before I decided to train today, I sat down at my sewing machine and finished a quilt I had been working on for a friend and fellow horseman. He had been admitted to the ICU where I work. It is always difficult to see someone you knew as a healthy, active person fighting to recover and regain strength he once possessed.

Everyday that I work in the ICU, I am thankful for my health. I am inspired by my patients and their endurance to keep fighting sometimes debilitating diseases. Everyday, I am encouraged not to waste any part of my life. Maybe this is why I am constantly busy, filling up every moment with something meaningful. I often wonder if I’ll ever slow down. I am always being told that I am young, I have time. But to me, the time we are given sometimes seems so short.

I spent some time writing in my journal the other night. My last diary entry ended with:
I decided to enter the Tevis Cup because I wanted to celebrate life. I am thankful for the health, the strength, the talent, and the ability that God has given me. To waste that would be a sin.
