There is something good in every day.
Each thing that happens is carefully orchestrated by the One above. He is and does only good.
That's why I wonder why I can't find something positive about today. High fever, sore throat, runny nose and an ear infection.
Yeah. After three days of a terrible cold, I begin to wonder if I'll ever feel better. It was strange since I've never gotten a cold in the summer before. I spent a Shabbos in camp completely out of it because of my annoying cold. Disregarding the fact that we had two awesome visitors that week, and I couldn't enjoy them because of how I felt, I just wanted to be myself again. I wanted to be able to sing again. I wanted to be able to sleep the night through. I wanted to forget about pain.
I've once read an article about pain, how pain is a blessing. Imagine I couldn't feel a fire burn me. Imagine I couldn't feel a dehydration headache. Imagine one couldn't feel the pain of a sword towards his neck. Pain tells us something is wrong. It is a warning, telling us that something needs to be changed. Sure, I'd much rather a letter fall down from the sky telling me that I'm lacking sleep, but that isn't the way Gd crated the laws of nature. Hashem knows that pain is the best way for us to live, until the times of Moshiach; a time when there will be no bad or evil; a time when there will be only joy; a time when there will be no more pain.
So what is good about my day?
Pain. Even though I'll do anything to relieve myself of it, I know it is meant to be. And I accept the Will of G-d.
