A year ago

Hi all,

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!
