~ Trying to be a PollyAnna ~

I love the Disney movie PollyAnna. I own it and I have watched it over and over. It is my ultimate (or at least one of them ...) feel good movie. It is about a young orphan who goes to live with her spinster aunt and without going into too many details, she spends most of the movie changing people's lives by helping them to see the good in life, even when things might not be so good. I think she called it her "glad game." I haven't had a cold like this one for several years, in fact, I haven't had one since before I found out about my "severe airway stenosis" which has caused me to undergo 4 surgeries to correct things for me. I remember worrying about getting a cold when I could hardly breath at times, and thinking I would probably be hospitalized if I ever did get a cold just so they could do whatever they needed to do to help me be able to breath - that was probably a little extreme, but that was my worry.

So, I said all of that to say this ... if I were to be playing Pollyanna's glad game, I would say I am glad God has healed my body so that I can handle having this cold - yucky though it is, it has been a reminder to me of my thankfulness for God's mercies, blessings and gifts He has bestowed upon me.

Maybe I should play Pollyanna's glad game more often.
