Down but not out.

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Gm friends. Today is an awesome day for me. I put both my shoes on. For u all that don't know, i broke my ankle in 2 places 13 weeks ago. I was going along content with my life of helping others when my accident happened. I laid in bed for 8 weeks fighting depression. I thought i was never going to walk right or even be able to walk again. My faith was tested. Thankful for family and friends that helped me get through it. I was doing so much for other ppl that I almost forgot about myself. But my God is so amazing that i was able to work through some things and see the real beauty in life. No longer do I take small things or anything for granted. Getting a drink of water, going to the restroom or even cooking a meal for myself. I am so grateful for the life that i have and the person that I've become. I have grown so much in this past year. My mom past 4 months ago and I'm still holding on to my faith. I've endured a lot this past year and it's only for God Grace and Mercy than I've persevered. I now stop and smell the roses, so to speak. I take more time for myself and with myself. Spiritual growth. I appreciate everything in my life today. So now you all know why i'm so happy about putting my shoes back on. I may have been down a little while but i was never out. Peace and blessings to u all... emoticon emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom, that is never easy. I lost mine 4 years ago and some days when I think of her it brings a smile and on some tears. Hang in there, it never goes away but it gets more bearable.

    I'm sorry about your ankle as well and happy to hear that you are healing very well. All it takes is the Faith of a mustard seed, Jesus said.....You have the right person with you......The Love of Jesus Christ. Have a Blessed Day!!

    emoticon Oh girl I am sorry I wondered what happened to you. Sorry for your mom passing that is never easy and I dread when mine goes home to be with God. I sure hope your foot get better. I remember when I just sprained my ankle it was hard. Dr told me to put up my foot was he kidding.? I have kids etc. God took care of me. Even thought it was hard

    You needed this time to reflect on all your blessings,
    although the circumstances were hard to understand.
    God wants us to look to him for strength and his
    guidance. Hope all continues to improve. HUGS!
