D is for Daily....

Have you ever had the thought...day after day the same routine..nothing exciting just going through the motions? I was like that. I pretty much got up in the morning. showered, ate and went to work, put in my time there, came home, ate supper watched TV or read, went to bed and started all over again. I wasn't really happy I was just going through the motions. I wasn't very happy and I wasn't very content. This all changed in January of 2011. I went into the hospital to have surgery and because of many complications I remained in the hospital until August of 2011.  I was in a coma for 2 weeks, in ICU for 4 months and had to relearn how to chew and walk. There were so many days that I thought I would never make it out of there. There were also so many days that I thought I would never walk again but I did. With a lot of work and determination I made it out and walked again. When I got home I had lost a lot but I also gained a lot. My daily life was no longer just going through the motions. I was no longer unhappy or not content. I am now a person that Has a daily walk with God in my life and in my heart. He got me through what others may not have gotten through. My daily life is now finding joy in the little things every single day. I am happy and I am content and my days are a real gift that I am so grateful for. Again thank you for stopping by!
Be blessed...DAILY!!

Hi Cindi, I have tears in my eyes as I read your post. You are a walking miracle. I know the Lord gets tired of my gripping and complaining and wanting more and more. I am so ashamed, I have it all, I just need to stop and not take nothing for granted and thank the Lord for every moment in life that I have and my many blessings. One of my blessings is my friends and you are one of them. Bunches of hugs, Lecia

Often times I find myself just "going through the motions". It's good to realize when this happens so you can beging to make a change. Being grateful for the small things everyday can begin to heal you. Sometimes it takes bigger events to change us. If you look at the most happy, content, and genuine people, most of them have had those life changing experiences. You are one of them:)
