It has been one week since I was infected by an extremely debilitating condition. Since then I have spiralled to the lowest points of ill-health and weakness, and embarked on a difficult, trialling journey of recovery. It will be some time before this cough goes away. And the runny nose. Bahaha seriously though, no-one ever appreciates how freaking wonderful it is to be alive and healthy until you are feebly rolling around pathetically in bed begging for your mom to bring you soup. Not that I do that, ever.
So, here is to health!
There is something very poetic about the remains of a dead spider and web smeared across the glass of one's window. I just thought that it really demonstrated the beauty of life in its minute form. Plus I didn't realise what it was until after I took a photo of it...
But in all seriousness, it made me think of all the small moments of ____ I encounter and forget. And I have no idea why but I have noticed a lot of these recently, from the time when my sister randomly bear-hugged me when I dropped her off at school, to seeing my dad bring home flowers for my mom for the first time in years, to biking full speed down a main road without helmet and without shoes, to melting in a puddle when R brought me soup in a can and a diy get-well card. Even from walking into someone I thought I'd never talk to again, and probably never will. If only I could bottle up all the ____ so that I might take little sips of it whenever I feel like it.
Here is to all those _____ moments, and I know you know what I mean :)
