For All of My Tomorrows

                   Yesterday I went to work sick and as the night progressed I got worse and worse.
I felt horrible. My cough was unquenchable, my fever was the kind that makes you
feel bad all over, and my nose ran like a fountain.
Of course no one would come in to relieve me so I had to stick it out.
I went straight to bed and finally fell into a restless sleep.
I thought to myself and what possible good could come of this?
As I pondered I was thankful to be alive. My nose being stuffy made me
remember to give thanks for the breath. My sickness made me to think about
my patients with cancer who will not get better and to their sickness there will be
no end. It made me think of those with respiratory disease who will not breath better
tomorrow.  As I rest in bed it made me to think of those who are in bed for life.
Those who won't be able to get up and go back to work in a few days.
It makes me to remember that even if I whine a little now tomorrow will
be better. I thank God for all my tomorrows.
