How I sure wish I could find the words to say all that has happened in the last few months. Health Issues, Nervous Breakdown, Surgery, Reaction to Medicines, almost losing my mind and bits of my spirit and soul... it felt like.
How I want to share how God placed people in my life that I never imagined who I didn't really know who have become lifelong friends, supporters, and caretakers for me. How God has allowed me to be tested to the core. How I had a small (or big to me) Job moment. How I seen community of a church wrap my family and I in love. Women cooking, cleaning, taking care, ministering, praying, and blessing my home and family for weeks on end.
How a month ago I couldn't drive, barely walk, eat (I lost 36 pounds in 6 weeks), couldn't function,or really be left alone. Today I am walking 2 to 3 miles a day, able to move, breathe, teach my kids, cook again, clean again. I am able to drive, and go to stores without having a major panic attack.
I am so thankful how God is bringing me through it all. Healing me bit by bit. Day by Day. I really can't express how hard the last few months have been and I am sure I will share later on. But today I want to just share how thankful I am to be alive, well, and blessed beyond measure. How it is easy to take for granted the simple things in life. Being able to cook, take care of yourself (even washing my hair was hard) and taking care of our families.
You would think I would know to have a pace that is balanced. But I go so long not being able to do anything (when episodes happen) and then when I get better I go 90 to nothing and crash again.
I am aiming to work better at this. It is so hard. So, this month I am planning to Journal daily something I want to do that will SLOW me down during my daily escapade of busyness. I want to have a balance of intentional living (not being lazy) but also intentional resting.
Please Join me Starting Monday here as I share my daily Journal on Intentional Resting Amongst Intentional Living.
Love you all! I have kept up with most of your blogs just not commented.
