The things we take for granted

How many times in the last 37 years have I said
‘I’m just going for a walk’
‘I’m going to get dressed’
‘I’m going to make a cup of tea’ & so much more.

I didn’t realise until I fell ill, just how much I took things for granted.

Even the most menial tasks I took for granted. 

I wish I had appreciated that I was lucky to be able to do all those things without assistance. I mean I have always thought I’m lucky when I’m looking after Lewis and see all his struggles and dependency on us to care for him.

I guess I never thought it would happen to me. I mean who expects that one day they are fine one minute and the next no feeling?
