I recently sent the following to my daughter via a text, but I felt it would make a great blog. We are both going through some “rough” health problems; but when you look around our problems are not all that bad. Everyone needs to take a look around and feel blessed, for your problems may be far less than someone else’s.
“Loved our conversation today. I’m sorry about your situation right along with my situation. Remember Honey, I was complaining about “having no shoes until I meet a man who had no feet.” Twice now since I have had my health problems I’ve been reminded of that saying. I met a man at the doctor’s office. I was in a wheel chair because I could not walk temporarily. He was also in a wheel chair–but had no legs. I asked him if he wanted to race and he said sure. I pulled up next to him and we had a great visit. Then today, while at the therapist office, I met a guy with only one leg. That’s the one I mentioned I had to help lift him to get him up on his one good leg and an artificial leg. He grabbed my bad arm/shoulder to keep from falling. He was concerned that he had hurt me. It did hurt; but, I was not going to allow him to know. Then, I ran into a crippled fellow at the Dollar General store. I could tell he had one leg that was not working. So, I jumped out of my truck just in time to catch him as he indeed did fall. I was able to break his fall and to protect the 2 – 12 packs of beer he had just bought. Needless to say, he was also drunk as well as being crippled. It is funny how the “good LORD” put me there at the exact right time.
It is only “COMMON SENSE” that you and I have ” a cross to bear”; but as compared to others, we are so blessed. We both are members of such a wonderful family and I have Mom for support and you have your hubby. Of course, the entire family lends us both support that we can lean on. Now that is a real “BLESSING”. Love ya, GOBY!”
