My Short List

Monday, January 28, 2013

Wow , all I can say is Wow!! The past few days have just been overwhelming but I got through it by Gods help and my friends and family and prayer!!

Last Thursday my dad had a mild stroke, I get the phone call, Im talking to him on the phone he sounds fine , Im all crying and emotional, he is convincing me that he is okay. my mom is convincing me he is okay.

Friday , I went to work , even though I slept with the help of natural sleep aids , it was still a restless sleep , my mood , my focus , my heart was just not into my work , I really had to trudge through the day but I did .

Saturday that day came I went to see my dad at the hospital, he was sitting in a chair , talking on the phone , did not look like a man who had a stroke. So we visit , he is explainingi things I am listening to him,, studying his face , his speech sometimes slowed down like when a person loses train of thought other than that , I was feeling okay

all in all, I witnessed a true miracle , I meet the Dr. he tells my dad he is going home and has his discharge papers!!! I saw my dad walk he had a cane but seriously he was just racing down the hall way as fast as he could go , myself and his therapist had to run after him!

Through all this today I started making a short list , a suggestion of a friend of mine whose husband has ALS,

Here is my list:

1. life is short
2.Things happen that you dont expect
3.When disasters hit something good is around the corner
4. God is with me
5.God protects me
6.God provides
7.Prayer works
