Have you ever thought about being thankful for pain? As I posted last week concerning the treatment for my kidney stone, now I have to deal with even sharper pain. there are times when the pain reaches upwards of 8,9 or even 10 on a scale of 10 and for that pain I have reason to be thankful. For the pain means that the fragments from the stone that was pulverized are coming out of my system. Further more I can be thankful that the pain is very short lived.
