Remembering to be Appreciative

I was visiting with my doctor today who told me that fifteen percent of people can maintain control of rheumatoid arthritis with methotrexate alone after getting it under control with stronger medications. I am lucky enough to be in this fifteen percent. I am doing extremely well compared to my limited functioning three years ago and can again use my fingers to type proficiently. Most days I tend to take it for granted. I am glad I was reminded today of my great good fortune.
