Thank you….

After waking up from the darkness, the first thing I remember is thinking “Thank you, Lord”.

Two weeks ago, I was walking my dog right after a small snowfall.  I didn’t get far, maybe one-half mile, when I slipped slamming my head on someone’s sidewalk.  I was disoriented, slurring my speech, off-balance……

Every day since, I just say three words to myself “Thank you, Lord”.

Why?  Because I slammed my head so hard the last thing I remember thinking was “my brain”.

I do have a concussion.  I do have to go to physical therapy twice a week.  I am unable to work.  I hardly get things done.  My thought process is slow.  I wear tape on my glasses, yes – like a nerd,  to hopefully correct my right eye from turning in.  I’m nauseous 24/7.  But…..

I’m still alive.  I can still walk.  I can still see. And, I am, oh, so able to be thankful to the Lord each and every day!

  1. I do hope that you have recovered from your fall and your concussion. I came here by way of “But We Don’t Chew Glass”. I saw your comment and thought I would pop on over for a visit. Gratitude is so important in every situation we may find ourselves in. I live with MS and, if it wasn’t for my positive outlook and twisted sense of humour, I am not sure how I would get through the challenging days. Most days are great and, no matter what the situation may be, I am always so very thankful that I am still able function to the best of my ability. I look forward to getting to know you and to following your blog. 🙂

    1. Linda,
      Thank you so much for your note. I have not posted in a long time. Right after my last post my Dad became very ill. He passed away after almost three months of suffering. I will keep you in my prayers. I have a few friends that also have MS and are doing wonderfully – they have their days, of course. One became an over 50 competitive body builder. She’s amazing. The other a retired school teacher. I’m going to pop in to your blog as well!!! Thanks again! In peace and light! Donna

      1. Oh, Donna, I am truly sorry to hear about your dad. Grief is such a personal journey and hits us when we least expect it. I hope you found some comfort in the memories that you had of him. Thank you for stopping by the Cabbage Patch. 🙂
