I've always desired change from time to time. I've always loved the feeling that comes when I start a new school year, try a different organizational tactic or simply adjust my way of thinking (ok, not so simple sometimes).
Today, the sun is shining, which it hasn't done in a few days and a new and positive 'light' is also 'shining in my heart. I have a glimmer of hope again. I was starting to lose hope that my ankle would ever make any improvements. I was starting to believe I would have to just live with the pain. I dealt with the ups and downs in the pain, the PT sessions, the MANY x-rays, multiple doctor appointments, etc. My hope was shot down with each step I took 'forward'. I've been praying all along for wisdom and guidance in making the right decisions along the way.
I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I'm hopeful, today, for the first time in a while, that God is in fact helping my ankle heal. This morning before I put my boot on my husband asked if I was feeling any difference yet. I thought about it and while I can't honestly answer yes to that question what I DID notice is the area around my ankle that had about a quarter size pad of swelling under it is GONE! Thank you, God, there are outward signs of a change taking place and for that I AM THANKFUL!!!
One more thing which I don't want to draw attention to, but I feel I owe my thanks...I'm losing weight!
I'm trying a new diet! It's working and I am thrilled!
THANK YOU GOD FOR YOUR STRENGTH!
