Praying for Good Health

I know a family comprising of parents and a teenaged daughter. The middle-aged father is a cheerful and active man . He complained of back pain but took it lightly and finally when the pain was unbearable, he was diagnosed with some problem in the spinal cord and operated upon. He was on strict bedrest for a couple of months and is yet to walk like a normal person though its about six months since the operation. Had he visited the doctor initially itself, the problem could have been cured without an operation. Looking at him, I realise the value of good health. In a matter of moments, his active life got changed to a passive one and that too totally unexpected.

In today's world, we get to know about so many new ailments that were unheard of till a few years back. Nowadays all hospitals are full of patients and sometimes there is no space to admit a new patient. Its time that we take good care of our health by following good eating habits and doing adequate exercises. It will atleast minimise the risk of ailments though nothing is in our hands. Plus, let us the remember the golden rule of " A stitch in time saves nine" and not postpone any visits to the doctor. Health is indeed wealth and I wish and pray that all of us lead a healthy life.
Wishing Everyone Tons of Wealth in the form of Good Health...
