Celebrate Health Care

Celebrate the Small Things

Today is Celebrate the Small Things Friday.  Hosted by Lexa Cain, L.G. Keltner of Writing Off the Edge, and Tonja Drecker of Kidbits, Celebrate the Small Things is a time when we all take a moment to celebrate something good from our week.  It can be small, it can be big, just something to look back on the week and celebrate!

It has been a crazy week, and I am writing this sitting in the Doctors office of one of multiple appointments I have today. So I celebrate the fact that I have access to quality health care. That I finally have a job which provides me with health insurance, and sick leave so I am not being fiscally penalized for taking care of my health.
For a long time I had no insurance, it wasn’t availible through my work – which kept me at part time so insurance wouldn’t have to be provided. For a long time there was no such thing as sick-leave at my jobs, so being sick meant a cost AND a loss of revenue.
So I am very grateful, and celebrating even in the midst of not so great health issues.

  1. I hope you feel better soon. At this day and age, I believe health care is a right and we should be making it available to everyone. But at least you get it through your work now. Have a lovely and healthy weekend. 🙂
