Live each day wisely

Romans 8:28 ESV / 2 helpful votes 

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Each day we are given is a gift and using it to show those around us love, kindness, and patients is how we are supposed to live. Now we are not perfect and will not always get it right, but in those moments all we have to do is admit our mistakes and ask for forgiveness then keep moving forward. When a wrong has been done to us it is crucial that we are quick to forgive as well and not keep record of the wrong.

God brings people into our lives for a reason and that is to love them even if it is only for a short time. So, each moment we are given is precious and is to be celebrated to the best of our ability. Even is our moments of pain and weakness we must do our best to show each other compassion and love living each day to its fullest and telling a better story.

I am a wife, mother, stepmother and grandmother who enjoys spending time with family and friends, crafting, gardening, and I am learning to live with being disabled. In 2017, after my 8th thoracic spinal surgery, I lost all feeling from the waist down as well as losing my proprioception on the right side. This has made it difficult to stand without assistive devices and made it, so I am having to relearn to walk. Plus, I have another uncommon condition called Chiari Malformation Type 1 which also creates balance issues as well as many other health issues. Because of the Chiari and the spinal cord injury, I have been left with severe nerve damage which causes a great deal of pain (5 and greater on pain scale) as well as spasticity, muscle spasms, and allodynia (burning) in various areas of my body. I have endured 8 surgeries on my Thoracic Spine and will probably need more as the drain that was placed will eventually clog and require replacement. Currently, I have a spinal to pleural cavity shunt, which drains the CSF from my arachnoid cysts into my pleural cavity. Professionally, I am a retired Health Care Professional with over 26 years of experience. I have worked in the Public Health realm as well as in Long Term Care and Acute Care. I have a B.A. in Sociology with an emphasis in Social Work. It is my hope that through sharing my personal trials, experiences, and triumphs that I can help others keep moving forward. No matter what life throws at us we can always tell a better story. I know that God is with me and because of this anything is possible. His promise to be by my side every step of the way helps me to keep pushing on even when there are setbacks.
