Amazed or Taken For Granted?

A week ago today, I got my hearing back. My baha (a bone anchored hearing device) has been incredible. I won't bore you with the details of what all it does, but it allows me to hear on the right side of my head--which I haven't been able to do in 5 years.

Each morning, when I put it on, I am amazed at how loud everything is, but as the day wears on, I have to plug my good ear to see if it's still working. My body adjusts to it and it becomes normal to hear again.

Makes me wonder, how many other amazing gifts do we start out being grateful for, but gradually forget the wonder of them and take them for granted?
