Today my back is hurting. Lots. It has been hurting for about a week or so but it is especially bad today. I don't really know what is wrong with it, but this happened a few years ago when I was teaching. Even though I have some back pain today, I am thankful for my health and that of my family. We do not suffer on a daily basis with pain or illnesses. We get the occasional cold now and then type stuff, but we are luckier than many. The pain I have today makes me appreciate how good I usually feel.
