Thursday - 03/18/2021 — Sometimes it takes seeing an old photo to realize just how precious life is. This one was taken in January of 2015, just a couple of weeks before I came so close to dying in an emergency room. Until I spotted this photo the other day, while I was looking for something else, I hadn’t realized how my body was trying to tell me how very wrong something was.
I’m not going to complain one bit about the COVID weight I’ve gained over the past year. I’d much rather be a bit chubby and thriving rather than gaunt and so much closer to the possibility of death than I realized at that time.
