After I fainted, the raindrops were reminders that skin feels and your soul lives in an unconscious state.
I didn’t know that an enemy wandered inside of my intestines, but, when I found myself collapsed on a carpet of green outside my home in the front yard.
It was my first realization that pain didn’t only come from others, but from microorganisms.
How could something so small steal from you?
There were many days with flu-like symptoms, I don’t remember the day when I found myself in the hospital so weak that words were invisible.
Waking to the nurses rushing around my hospital bed, but I was relieved that I was here.
God was in the grass, the sky, and the clouds that day.
And I was grateful.
