Thankful Thursday

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Thankful Thursday. Today, I am very thankful for understanding hearts. The last couple of weeks, have been really hard on me physically, and emotionally. I feel like I am taking steps backward in my stroke recovery. I honestly, feel totally drained. My entire body constantly hurts. When I go to get up out of a chair, or out of my bed, it takes forever, and I hurt. My head hurts alot, not like a headache, but very sore on the outside of my head. My speech is slurred, sounds like I have been drinking. Another thing that has been happening, that scares me, is I think things have happened, that never happened.  Yesterday, when Eddie got home, he said I got really upset with him, and told him, that he had hurt my feelings. I remember saying that to him, and I thought, I remembered why I was upset with him. I thought, I was sitting on our bed, with a beautiful canister of popcorn, that I told Eddie, I had walked up to our dumpster, and found it. It still had popcorn in it, and when I went to show Eddie the canister, the popcorn fell out onto our bed. I started picking it up, and asked Eddie, if he would please help me pick it up. He got mad, and said no. That really hurt my feelings, so I just laid down on our bed, and turned away from him, and went to sleep. Well, later, when we both woke up, I told him we needed to talk about what had happened. Needless to say, none of that had happened. I would never take things out of a dumpster, especially not food, yuck. Eddie said, when he came in our bedroom, I was laying down. He asked me if I was ok, or was I feeling bad.  I looked at him, and said that nothing was wrong, and asked him to leave me alone. Ok, now, that is very scary. That happened to me a few times, when I was in intensive care.  I praise God for blessing my husband with an amazing, understanding heart. He did not get one bit mad at me, only concerned. He forgave my attitude, and prayed with me, and for me. Please say a prayer for me, would very much appreciate it. I go see my Doctor next Thursday, February 2nd. Be blessed sweet friends, much love to everyone.

Oh, sweet Denise; I am so sorry that you are not doing well. I pray that God will give your strength and peace during this time of turmoil.

Denise, I am lifting you up and prayer and asking God to give you courage and strength to bear you trials. It may help you to focus on His passion, which is what I did in my own time of darkness. Somehow knowing what he endured for me made it a tiny bit easier...though my own darkness cannot compare to what you are enduring.

Stay sweet and strong and rest in His Love.

Men do not always understand the emotions and quick remarks of their wife. Be patient with him and understand that he does love you very much!
