Being on the mend

I'm sure you know the moment I'm about to describe. This is the moment when after a time of being sick, you find yourself able to perform mundane tasks, and it thrills you. These are tasks that, when in good health, you perform without thinking. Like plucking one's eyebrows, or making the bed, or getting dressed. It felt so damn good to get dressed today.

I like this moment between illness and full health precisely because it highlights the minute tasks my body can perform and makes them miraculous. Today, I am very grateful for my resourceful and resilient body that can do so much, including pluck my eyebrows:)
