It Is A Blessing Just To Breathe. #IPF

Count your blessings,
today and Everyday,
It is a blessing just to breathe.

Sometimes life moves so fast you can forget to count your blessings. Really it is a blessing just to be able to breathe because for some that is a struggle. This September is IPF Awareness Month. IPF or Idiomatic Pulmonary Fibrosis is a disease that causes scarring in the lungs making it hard for the lungs to move oxygen into the bloodstream, the brain and other vital organs.
