Illness has a way of slowing us down and be humble enough to have a hearty conversation to God. Hope we all have hearty conversations to God regardless of our condition. When I was younger, much of my prayers were when I felt I had a need. Then later, I started to thank God as well. These days, I pray daily and 99% of the time they are praises (full of thanks) for everything, even for bad days, for many lessons are learnt from them.
