January 2, 2015 - A brand new year. A brand new life.
October 15, 2014, one day before my 65th birthday. I have moved on October 3rd, after 22 years At the same location, with the superhuman help of my only daughter, moving crew and my son. My husband of 12 years engaged in inappropriate behavior with a close family member so I kicked him out 3 months ago and I am presently in the process of divorcing him. Life has changed drastically this year but I am still trying to get healthier and lose weight.
The first months of 2014 were filled with sickness and death of close family members. But I took and take comfort in God's infinite grace and mercy which enables me to make it through each and every day, which I thank him for daily.
There was a snowstorm in New Jersey, January 3, 2014. I know that God has blessed me with a brand new year. I pray that with his love and guidance I make the most of it.
I am nearing the end of 2013, it is Thanksgiving Day. With God's Grace and Eternal Blessings I have been able to walk down and up the 12. Steps; (very significant for it to be 12); in my home that leads from my bedroom to the Livingroom/Kitchen/Laundry room downstairs several times a day. Quite an accomplishment for me in my post stroke recovery thus far. Thank You Jesus, ThankYou Lord.
I have significant anniversaries this year, 2013. August 17th will be the 3rd Anniversary of my Stroke , October will be 3rd Anniversary of learning to walk again and December 23rd will be the 3rd Anniversary of my return home from the Rehab Center where I recuperated from my Stroke.
I'm here to get healthier. Moreso now than when I joined in 2008. God has been good to me helping me find Sparkpeople and saving me when I had a Stroke in August, 2010. I am grateful for His love, mercy and blessings.
Dear God help me remember that every day is a gift and a blessing. Help me be forever grateful for each day, as each day is another chance to do better, to get it right this time. Help me be always mindful of that fact and to cleave to You, listen to You and be guided by Your direction and instruction in my daily comings and goings. I ask this of You in Jesus' name, for Christ sakes, if it be Thy will, Amen.
