My daughter has been sick with a stomach flu and has missed work for two days now. She doesn't have sick leave, so missing work is not an ideal situation.
However, in spite of this instance of illness, I find myself feeling grateful. You see, over a year ago she was in the midst of a serious episode of a chronic health condition, and at the time I was feeling scared and a bit hopeless! She still has a way to go in her journey to what can be considered having her chronic condition under control, but she is so much healthier now than she has been for several years and I am feeling so very grateful for that.
