Oh What A Day!

Wow. I cannot believe how good I am feeling! Hallelujah! It was but a mere 2 1/2 weeks ago that I thought I would never feel good again. Honestly. I was to the point where I was like, this is it. Discouragement, frustration, even anger abounded!

It has been so long.

I honestly feel better than I have in over 5 years. I'm so thankful. I'm so grateful.


I will struggle with MG until the Lord sees fit to heal me, whether this side of heaven or once I'm there. Either way, I feel like I'm getting a little glimpse of what it would be like to be healthy.

Trach aside, yesterday seemed like such a NORMAL day!

I curled my hair for the first time since I can remember. (It's been since before Jacob was born, I know that).

I wore a necklace for the first time in a long time.

I felt pretty for the first time in a loooooong time.

I dropped Jacob off at Doug's work while I ran to the chiropractor, BY MYSELF.

We went to the store at 5:00PM AFTER all the other events of the day thus far, and I was FINE.

I came home, did the dishes, cleaned up the table, straightened the bathroom a little bit, and put potatoes in the oven.

Some of you may be thinking, so what? I do that and more every day. (You probably haven't been reading my blog long!) : )

Can I just ask all of you one thing? PLEASE don't take life for granted. Every day, every minute....every breath is a miracle to me. I keep telling everyone how amazing it is to breathe! They look at me kinda funny, but they understand, because they've seen me struggle.

Struggle to get up the stairs.

Struggle to walk out to the car and get in.

Struggle to take care of my child.

Struggle to just breathe.

So today....hug your child, your spouse, your sister, friend, dog, cat, whatever! Just show love to someone, let them KNOW you love them, and take time to really appreciate the mundane. You never know when it may become the miraculous!

I'm so glad you had a good day. This is my first time here, so I don't know what a bad day looks like for you. But good days are always a blessing. I hope you continue to have good days like this one!

God bless.
