I went to the doctor yesterday. As I was walking into the building, I was thinking about the past when any time I went to the doctor, my mom had to go get a wheel chair to roll me in. I had absolutely no energy and was too weak to walk. I would get in the examination room and lay on their exam bed. That is all I could handle. I remember just crying all the time.
So when I went to my appointment, the nurse practitioner and I were talking about my color in my face not being so gray anymore and how the little bit of weight I had put on looked made me look so much better. I feel better. I am not 100% and don't think I ever will be but in comparison to last year I am so much better. Just wish I could eat without bad consequences.
This has left me with a thought - have I truly expressed my gratitude? I am thankful to God for listening to my prayers and prayers of others. I am thankful to my Mom for taking care of the triplets and I on the darkest of days. I am thankful to the many prayer warriors out there - some known and some not - that prayed for me. I am thankful that I feel good today.
So as I walk today and take my son to the doctor - I will be thankful that I am able to do so. I know my limits - good for about two days and then crash and burn for a day. But I am thankful that I had those two good days.
So with a full heart of gratitude, thank you God and all the prayers that have brought me this far!
