"A person can hear, but a friend listens for the meaning. A person can look, but a friend sees the heart. A person can know, but a friend understands your dreams. Thanks for listening, seeing, and understanding! Thanks for being a friend!" Speaking (typing) to you who totally understand what our bodies are going through helps me so very much and I appreciate each one of you who takes the time to let me know your story.
My days as of late have not been the best, but I am hanging in there. My husband and I were in a "fender bender" two weeks ago, and neither of us have recovered completely. No major injuries, but with our conditions, even the smallest of accidents take time to get over!
Recently I read that "sometimes God delivers us from trials and sometimes He allows us to walk through them. He does not do this to bring us defeat, but rather to allow us to learn things that are vital to our faith and trust in Him." I have never been one to sit and "wallow in self pity", but with such pain as we have with Fibro and all of the "latch-on" conditions that come along with it, it makes it difficult some days not to think ... "what can I learn from this???" But, being a Christian, I know my suffering is nothing compared to that of Jesus. He bore the pain of all. I should not even think of complaining.
Good and exciting news . . . I am going to be a Grandmother again! I am excited about that. My middle son shared the news with me this week. They are due in December. I have two wonderful grandsons already and would welcome another! But, then, a granddaughter would be awesome as well!!!
Hoping each of you a wonderful evening and "in the morning, place your elbows on the windowsill of Heaven and gaze upon your Lord, and in the beauty of that vision go forth to meet the day". (author unknown)
