Where I’m At

I feel this deep sense of relief.

It’s been over 7 months since my car accident and only a few days ago I had my final doctor’s appointment. After my examination, the doctor cleared me to be able to work again. You have no idea how amazing this feels!

There’s literally no feeling that describes my gratefulness to God during these last few months. If you’re a new reader, or don’t know what happened, you can read about my accident here. I literally spent months in bed. To say it was hard is a gross understatement. I had never been through such loneliness, pain, and had so many questions…but through it all, God showed Himself to me in a really special way. I remember, especially in the first several weeks I could barely look at my phone because it hurt my eyes, so I would just lie there and talk to God. It sounds ridiculous, but even though it was a tough time, it was the sweetest.

Now as I walk and do short workouts and have returned to having a social life, my heart is grateful in another way. Life becoming “normal” again. Whatever that is.

I’m so excited for this new chapter as I start applying for jobs and think about moving. To say I’m out of the woods is true…although I still have days where I have headaches no-painkiller-can-fix or where I’m past the point of “old lady exhausted” – but that’s NOTHING. I shouldn’t be alive, or at the least, should be in a wheelchair forever.

Today I am Thankful

Psalm 27:13-14 – “13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”

What are you thankful for today?
