Today was back to work. It was a workaday day, but fine. No high ups, no low downs. Just ordinary, which is good.
My sister recently wrote a blog entry praising normal after she recovered from a severe bout of flu. After I had kidney stones, I looked up the Jewish prayer to be said after urinating (or other business):
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe,
Who fashioned man with wisdom, and created within him many openings and many cavities.
It is obvious and known before Your throne of glory,
that if but one of them were to be ruptured,
or but one of them were to be blocked,
it would be impossible to survive and to stand before You.
Blessed are You, God, Who heals all flesh and acts wondrously.
