#writethepandemic Prompt 12: Gratitude during Covid-19

One small big thing I’m particularly grateful for right now, in this time of Covid-19, is my health. This is usually overlooked as I am busy with life. Now, more than ever, I am grateful to be alive. Should I be gone, I dread to think who is going to take over my role for my immediate family. Sure there is at least one contender who has been coveting my position, but they are far from being a good match and I don’t endorse them. When its time for me to go, my family should be able stand on their feet and not rely on self-serving ones.

Thank you God, for my health.
