There’s a Jewish prayer that gives thanks for fashioning us with “many openings and many hollows. . . .  If even one of them ruptures, or if even one of them becomes blocked, it would be impossible to survive (even for a short period).”  Some obstructions are beyond us while simultaneously within us.  No matter what obstruction faces you externally, give thanks for good health while you have it.  And if you do not have it, know that this too is a daily obstruction.  My one of your internal openings be open to the thought of that.
