I was out at Mt Vernon recently and I stopped to visit with the sheep, a pen full of rams. I was standing there taking pictures over the top of the rail fence and I felt something warm on my leg. I looked down and one the sheep had stuck his nose through the fence, I was feeling his warm moist breath on my leg.
Later I was thinking, that back in early 2015, I wouldn't have felt that. I had lost most of the feeling in my feet and legs. The feeling has largely returned - thanks to the success of the surgery on my spine back in 2015. Little things like this remind me how fortunate I am and how close I came to living an drastically different life.
What reminded you how fortunate you are this week?
