Ill. Grateful for making myself sit through meditation earlier. Grateful my husband took the day off to help put a lift for disabled people in the church he attends. Grateful he gave me vegetable broth. And grateful he set up the heating pad for my lower back. I'm sad, too, of course; chronic illness... it's hard to deal with for so long. Oh, and I'm grateful the books are coming today, "out for delivery"--the ones written by a former attorney who got a virus, became chronically ill, and was already doing Vipassana meditation. I need the sense of not being alone, and of having a guide, that reading the books will give me.
