The above is a quote that came in a Christmas newsletter from a neighbor mentor that is moving with her husband to Italy in June of 2008. When taking a long walk not long ago I was selfishly saddened upon hearing her news in person prior to receiving her newsletter.
It is my prayer that I can steal (ok not steal, but state) her quote in the years to come. At this moment it is difficult for me to trust God for the years to come.
The following verse is printed on my "Thank you for Taking Care of the Snodgrass Family" information folder it was also in the newsletter. A good reminder for me.
In his heart a man plans his course,
but the Lord determines his steps.
Therapy for my left side has been muscle sorelike and it is still hard to find the best time to be able to complete my home exercise program (HEP). It seems that as soon as I have each exercise down, two more sessions of 10/20 are added. My hand needs definite muscle improvement. The thumb is not strong. Supposedly shorter muscles have a hard time recouperating/ recovering (aka: the hand) compared to longer muscles(aka: the leg). Thankfully my left leg is coming along. I am sore in my quads. Ohh doing stairs is uncomfortable tonight. Two days of consecutive therapy is to blame! I'm sure. Speech therapy has shown that my conginitive processing needs improvement. After reading a short story and approached with specific questions I become confused . My short term memory has been affected as well. I am using a written memory notebook in my purse per the therapist advice.
Since returning home from the rehab hospital I had my first major headache behind the right eye (migraine like) last night. I am so thankful tonight that it has yet to surface also that it has been the first major pain since discharge.
Not driving just yet. . .My mom(Gram to ya'll) is the chauffeur. Please pray for her stamina along with encouragement. Thank you to many who have picked me up from therapy.
Off to basketball games tomorrow. So glad.
My cup overflows with blessings...
