I have a terrible toothache. It started yesterday and my dentist isn’t in on Fridays. Now it is Saturday and of course he still isn’t in, but bless his heart,yesterday he answered my call on his way to run a marathon and told me what to do to make it through until he returns.
But all this has made me think about our ancestors. How many died because of a tooth infection? How many suffered excruciating pain without being able to call a dentist and get help? We are so blessed and, I for one, take those blessings too much for granted. Besides being a phone call away, I’ve got antibiotics and pain killers. A toothache is no longer a life-threatening ailment. So while I wait for the marathon to be over, I am going to be grateful instead of complaining.
I am so blessed!
