Grateful For...Health Wealth

Health is wealth.
This ditty really resonates this month.

Health is wealth.
With my Mum and aunty seriously unwell at the moment and a friend's beautiful, young, vibrant daughter taken far too early by cancer - it rings oh so true.

Health is wealth.
Walk into any children's hospital and ask a parent what they wouldn't give (or haven't already) for their child's life or health.

Health is wealth.
I have seen firsthand the disgrace that is another first world country's health system and I wouldn't want to be depending on it. Yet another reason we are the 'lucky country'.

Health is wealth.
And I'm feeling pretty cashed up right now.

Healthy, 'wealthy' & grateful with Maxabella Loves.
Pop over and enjoy some weekend gratitude.

too true, I'm feeling flat today and it's easy to lose site of whats important. Thank you for reminding me to get over myself and be grateful for my happy healthy family. I appreciate it.

Oh my goodness, without health there is nothing and it's not until it's taken away, even temporarily, that you appreciate it. A lovely reminder to not take great health for granted.

My brother had a motorcycle accident 7 years ago which landed him in a wheelchair, so when I find myself complaining about sniffles or headaches or minor ailments I slap myself right back into my perfect world of perfect health. Cheers for good health Shar! xx

Absolutely. A wealth of health and a richness of experiences are the only cash I care about. I hope your family are all better soon. x

So true ... Having god health is real wealth ... and also having a system that supports both good health practice and helping when things go wrong is also a great thing to be grateful for.
