Is Thursday the only day you count your blessings? I pray that you count your blessings daily. Believe me, I do, now, more than ever. On Labor Day, I had my stroke. When I tried to walk, and I was not able to, my dear lovebug had to pick me up, carry me into the bathroom, sit me down on the commode, then pick me up, and carry me back into our bedroom, where he gently sat me back down on our bed. As soon as he sat me back down on the bed, and let go of me, I fell back on the bed, I had no control over my body. When the ambulance got here, they had to pick me up, and put me on the gurney. Friends, I had my stroke on September 5th, so this Saturday, it has been two months since my stroke. I consider it a huge blessing that I am still alive, and that I can walk. My walking is not like it used to be, I walk a little slower, and I walk off balance sometimes. But, that is quite alright with me. At least my legs still work, go me. I get really tired very easy, and sometimes quite often. But hey, so did the little engine, but it kept chugging along, and made it up the mountain. I can see my mountain in the distance. Woo Hoo. When I get tired, my lungs hurt really bad, and I have problems with my breathing. But, praise God, I continue to breathe. Also, when I get tired, it affects my speech. My speech becomes very slurred. But, again, I praise God, because I continue to talk, and talk, and talk. lol!! I give You all the praise Father God, and I will all the days of my life. My life, which I only continue to live, because of You. To God be the glory, thanks for the gift of life Father God.
