On Your Heart Tuesday
Hello everyone, praying you are all doing well. What is on your heart today? I am thinking about what I found out when I saw my neurologist last week. Of course, when I had my stroke, some of my brain cells died, and scar tissue formed. I will never regain those lost cells, unfortunately, brain cells do not regenerate. Now, according to this most recent brain scan, I have softening of some brain tissue, which has caused a hole, similar to a crater that forms on the moon, to form in my brain. I literally have a hole in my head, lol What does this mean? What can happen due to this? Because all of this is happening in the exact area where I had my stroke, the back of my brain, it can cause another stroke, coma, or blindness. But, you know what? That is ok, it really is. None of us are promised tomorrow, so we need to enjoy today, for the gift it is. I am thankful for every morning that I wake up, thank You God. I appreciate that God has blessed me with 48 years here in this world, lots of memories. I am not going to dwell on the past, and wonder what might have been, nor am I going to worry about my future, wondering what might happen. I intend to live in the present, open each day as it comes my way, smile at the world, and enjoy each new day. Life is an adventure, and I am going to live it. Even if I wake up one day, no longer able to see the new day, I will not cry for what was, or what I will have lost. Instead, I will praise God for all the years I was able to see, and relive those precious, beautiful memories over, and over in my heart. Live your life thankfully, not regretfully.
