I know! I know! It’s been awhile since our last post. It’s amazing how life keeps marching on. I had a warm and relaxing time away in Florida visiting my Mom and Dad.
My brother Rob and His girlfriend Ghania accompanied me down and back. Rob stepped in like a pro lifting and pushing me wherever I wanted. It’s not easy taking care of a Princess but he did it like a Prince. Ghania was my roommate and I would take her any day. Many nights I went to sleep to a deep back and leg message. This reduced a lot off my muscle toning allowing me to sleep better.
Mom and Dad had everything ready for us. Mom took over with helping me get ready in the mornings and at night and just like I was home again Daddy tucked me in with a kiss on my forehead and a hug to last the night. My Uncle and Aunt even got in on the welcome party and brought over a few things that I would need. Thank You!
We visited with friends, did some shopping…well some of us more than others… (Ghania) And of course there was the beach & enjoying the warm breeze.
While I was away enjoying the warm sun, Mike and the girls were enjoying the sun but it was a little chillier. Our annual ski trip with the Martins and Rolston families continued on. Off to Tremblant they went celebrating the end of exams. Even the Ouies family got to join in for some of the fun. I received updates and pictures daily. I even got to face-time them. Isn't technology amazing? But I was still missing them. We have shared some amazing times as families and I hate missing out. It was a good time for Daddy and his girls to just relax and enjoy. I got back on Friday to enjoy the weekend with them and to celebrate Mike’s birthday.
Although I have been driving, I haven't been able to get into the van by myself and or put my chair in on my own. I have had to rely on others to help me. BUT, today was very exciting for me! Through the snow storm my sister came and drove me to pick up my van (nothing was stopping her) outfitted with a lift and a special seat to help me transfer in and out my van. FREEDOM!!!! Now for sure Mike won't be able to keep track of me.
My week is very full between physiotherapy, acupuncture appointments and work. I've been back to work for some time now and enjoying every minute. I'm able to do so much of what I did before, giving me a real sense of accomplishment. I was never one to sit around and although I might have to physically sit more now than I ever have in my life it’s not stopping me from living.
Daily I continue to plead with God to heal my body completely. I know He can and He will, one day. Hebrews 11:1 "Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen, it gives us assurance about things we cannot see." Even though I can't see where or why God is leading me down this path I am trusting Him in everything. That doesn't mean for a second that it’s easy to do. God and I have had some serious discussions. I know that He is molding me into what He wants me to be. I pray that all this will be honoring and glorifying to Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 " Rejoice always (that's a hard one) pray without ceasing (I'm getting good at that) in everything give thanks (another hard one), for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (who me?)
Please continue to pray along with me for complete healing. Pray that God will continue to bless Mike and the girls and I with continued strength keeping their eyes focused on Him. I thank God for giving all of us a spirit of happiness.
Big Hugs Sandra
