Unspoken Blessings

Hearing the unfortunate stories of others urges me to post my thoughts on this long abandoned blog. I really want to thank God for many unspoken blessings in my life.

The very first breath that we take when we wake up is already a very great blessings from God. Life is so fragile that you can lose it in split second. A relative of mine had fallen sick from pneumonia and was being hospitalized in ICU. One of her lungs collapsed that she had to depend on a ventilator to breathe. The fluid in her body was so highly depleted to the point of kidney failure.  The hydration was caused by severe diarrhea and vomiting. She was seen healthy two days before she was admitted and i just couldn't believe what i heard. Thank God that she's gradually recovering from this critical illness. It is indeed a great blessing that i'm still alive and not disabled or handicapped. I always complain that i don't make enough money but without good health, i wouldn't have had the opportunity to work.

My low self-image always makes me think that I'm least loved. Sometimes, this thought drives me away from my friends and family. However, there are more people suffer from loneliness. I heard from my mother-in-law that there's a loner died unnoticed for many days until the stench of the dead body alerted the neighbours nearby.

Well, things have been going tough lately because of many changes happened in a year: new job, new relationship status, new environment and new church. The pimples on my face are the result of a string of new events in life. When my status changed from 'single' to 'married', a lot of things have to be considered because i'm not only married to a man but another family as well. However, after hearing unfortunate stories of others, I feel less depressed because I realized that God's been so good to me all these while.
